Toronto has been home to a wide range of restaurant celebrations over the years, but none like this before. Introducing: Toronto’s first Caribbean Restaurant Week.

Celebrating the “rich tradition of Caribbean cuisine found in Toronto,” the culinary extravaganza will be filled with tantalizing fare. Think: jerk chicken, curry goat, oxtail, and ackee and saltfish.

The inaugural dining event, presented by One Caribbean Television, takes place at eateries across the GTA for ten days from Wednesday July 17 to Saturday July 27, 2019.

Currently, there are nine participating restaurants. Details have yet to be released regarding menu items and pricing, so stay tuned.

After dining, be sure to vote for your favourite spot – you could win a trip to the Caribbean for Carnival 2020.
