Packed with restaurants and food choices. Small area and easy to walk around. Some very nice stationary/gift stores. K-pop staff we only found in Just you Sarah and Tom. Also you might want to try the Poop Cafe. Can't depend on the business hours though, some stores are way late to open

Sitting snuggly along Bloor St between Christie and Bathurst Station is Koreatown...the closest onne that I have encountered outside of South Korea. When I was there during the evening, even the aroma of spicy Korean cooking was present! Both sides of the street was lined with Korean restaurants (and a few Japanese too), groceries and other trinklet stores. Other than... More

Korea town is filled with a lot of amazing food to try and a lot of stuff to do that you wouldn't normally do. I recommend going and getting lost in Koreatown

We're from out of town and wondered if there was a koreatown in Toronto. I heard there were a lot of Asians but not every city with a lot of Asians has a koreatown. To my surprise there was and although it is only a few blocks long it is packed. A grocery store with a fish shaped bread stall... More

Bloor Street West, between Bathurst and Christie. Great fun to browse through small boutiques and shops, tea houses and how about some Korean barbecue, kimchee, tofu soup, etc. Had a great lunch @ Kachi and some tea at the tea house nearby. One of the shops we found accidentally and fell in love right away was called "Hanji" selling loads... More

Went to Toronto for a combined business/pleasure day trip. Ended up in Korea Town with time to spare and two little kids. It was fun! Shops were neat and everyone was very polite. Never felt stupid for asking about an item or something I didn't know/couldn't read. Special shout out to Just for You Sarah and Tom (near Bloor and... More

We spent quite a bit of time walking around Koreatown, and it was pretty cool! We really liked the sort of cutesy shops with stickers, stationary, plushies, etc., and the food was pretty good too. We had lunch at Mom's Korean Food because we noticed quite a few Korean people inside, and it was pretty good. We then had bubble... More

If you like Kimchi then this is the area to go to get it. There a couple of Korean grocery stores that I visit on regular basis. Plus, while you are there, feel free to stop at one of the several really good Korean restaurants. Do some menu shopping while you walk through the area and just pick a place,... More

While staying in Toronto for a few days, I had to go to Koreatown.. My daughter is teaching in Korea and I wanted to get a feel for where she is. This is a nice place to visit, the stores and restaurants are great.

I went here with a friend who has spent a lot of time in Korea. He loved the shops and food. I can't remember the places we ate, but he was extremely satisfied with each of the meals and the snacks we bought.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
