Littile Tibet in Toronto

 Hello everyone. Today I would like to introduce Little Tibet in Toronto. You may have heard of Little Greek or Little Italy, but not many people have heard of Little Tibet. In fact, I had never heard of it either until recently.

Here is the location. It's located southeast of High Park, in the Parkdale area.

According to Wikipedia, about 3,000 Tibetans immigrated to Toronto between 1998 and 2008, making Toronto home to the largest Tibetan-Canadian community in North America.

 Also according to the 2006 census, more than half of the city's Tibetans live in Parkdale.

Would you like to go there? I would very much like to go. I am interested in Tibetan culture after my trip to Nepal. But, actually, I haven't had a day off since last Thursday, so I haven't been able to go yet😭

So here are two restaurants I would like to visit.

1.Tsampa Restaurant

1528 Queen Street West Toronto, ON 

This is the restaurant that was featured on the blog of the Japanese person who first introduced me to Little Tibet. They have Tibetan-style dumplings called momos, and there are 15 different kinds of them. I am also interested in the many menu items that are depicted as Nepali style.


1600 Queen Street West Toronto, ON 

This one was listed on a website that showcases Toronto. I loved the pictures of the interior. The five-colored flags are called "Tarcho" and they have pictures of sutras and Buddha images on them. Whenever these flags flutter in the wind, it is said to have the same effect as reading sutras. I saw many of them during my trip to Nepal.

(like this it is a picture I took)

Everyone in Toronto, you should not miss there. I can't wait to go myself...
Also, there is a 1997 American film about Tibet  "Seven Years in Tibet". It is based on a true story and is very interesting. I recomend you to watch this movie also

thank you for reading!
