momofuku night market

Mini night-market coming to the Financial District

The night market, a fixture in Asian cities, is alive and well in Toronto, with crowds flocking to events like Night It Up as well as its downtown counterpart. Now, just like any other food trend in Toronto, the night market will soon be going upscale, tiny, and right to the heart of the Financial District.

Drake One Fifty and Momofuku, two of the area's biggest culinary destinations, are joining forces to convert the parkette on York between Richmond and Adelaide, right next to One Fifty, into a tiny night market dubbed Twilight Tuesday. Alongside Richmond Station and the Garbardine, the restaurants will be doling out street foods and summertime snacks to a backdrop of live music on August 5th between 6 and 9pm. The market is set to return every Tuesday for the remainder of August.

This is the first-ever installation of the market, so it remains to be seen how much resemblance these snacks will bear to the classic night-market eats. Will there be meats on sticks? Whirly taro chips? Stinky tofu? Drop by next week to find out for sure.
