Toronto gets a new curry festival

Curry Fest, from the same folks behind Yum Cha, has released tickets for this next spicy food festival slated to take place on the afternoon of Sunday, March 22.

While the lineup of vendors has yet to be released, organizer Spotlight City Events has a knack for commanding marquee restaurants like Momofuku Daisho and The County General, as well as previewing up and coming kitchens like the soon-to-open Buster's Rhino and FeasTO, who will debut a food truck on Toronto streets this summer.

Curry Fest is anticipated to showcase authentic dishes rooted in Southern and South East Asian cuisines, along with variations popularized in the UK. I also expect some modern interpretations from Toronto chefs experimenting outside of their comfort zones (speculation based on the unexpected and inordinate amount of cheese consumed at Yum Cha last weekend).

Tickets are $10 and are being sold in limited numbers for morning and afternoon sessions that will take place at 2nd Floor Events (461 King St. West). Food at the event will be additional - expect dishes to hover around $5 mark.
