“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Little India is home to a thriving South Asian community and tasty restaurants serving Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi, and Afghan specialties. In the late summer, the Festival of South Asia fills the streets here. The largest market of South Asian products in North America is Gerrard India Bazaar, where you'll find heirloom gold jewelry, silks, Indian music CDs, steel tiffin lunch boxes, and savory samosas. For unexpected treats, head to Pizza Pide for delicious Turkish pizza, and indie coffee shop Grinder for one of Toronto's finest cups of coffee.
