TORONTO SUDDENLY HAS A NEW CRAVING – SYRIAN FOOD – WRITES DAVID SAX IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

SOUFI’s Syrian restaurant, 676 Queen Street West, is one of about a half-dozen Syrian food businesses to appear around TORONTO in recent years.

“Until recently, Syrian cuisine hardly existed in TORONTO. With just a few hundred families, the Syrian population was too small to support a restaurant scene. But over the past two years, following the high-profile resettlement of more than 50,000 refugees in Canada, the TORONTO area — where over 11,000 of them live — is experiencing the green shoots of a Syrian-food boom.” – DAVID SAX
