Tap Phong

Posted by Staff / Posted on November 10, 2009

Tap PhongTap Phong is the place to go when looking for kitchen supplies on the cheap. From restaurant-grade dishes, top quality knives, ceramics, cookware, kitchen utensils, rice cookers and bento box sets Tap Phong has it all. Oh, and if you say you're a student at George Brown they'll give you a 10% discount.

I can't walk into this place w/o buying something. I still want one of those water-cooler sized rice maker/dispensers but my wife would kill me if I showed up at home with one lol

Nice to see Tap phong as #1. The prices are fantastic. Got my Global knives for about 1/2 the price of other places in town.

Got three 9 x 12 cake pans AND an offset spatula at Tap Phong for less than the price of one pan at Williams Sonoma...a little on the disorganized side but they have everything....

Why does everyone compare to W&S? Only masochists shop there. How does TP compare to say, the Bay? Is it worth the trip?

Totally worth the trip. When I go to Tap Phong I feel like a kid in a candy store. Only the candy store is having a 50% off sale.

Always remember to ask for your discount, but honestly, the prices are usually amazing on their own. I picked out my set of Fibrox knives (highly recommended) at a great price and then they took 10% off! Killer.

A word to the wise: I've had a look, and for small wares like wooden spoons, ladles, etc, Tap Phong carries the EXACT SAME brand that George Brown bookstore offers, only at a substantial discount. I wasn't able to find a couple things like microplanes at Tap Phong, but you can outfit yourself with all the necessities for Chef School at lower prices at this place.

In short: I'm a Tap Phong addict.

I was in the neighbourhood (Kensington Market) w/a friend and we walked in to look around. WOW! This store has an expansive selection of merchandise and it's all reasonably priced.

I don't enjoy shopping in Chinatown, however this is one of few, very few stores in Chinatown that has good, FRIENDLY AND POLITE staff. The people working in this store are considerate and they treat their customers with respect.

With havin so much content and articles do you
ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
