Toronto at the Market

We had some time on my last log weekend trip to Toronto for a little time in the Kensington Market  which includes China town.  On the way down we stopped at a real deli for some chicken soup, a corn beef sandwich, and some stuffed derma or kishka.  Stuffed derma used to be made from stuffed beef intestines.  Some of you may be familiar with sausage or chitterlings.  Remember in the old days the immigrants not having a lot of money would make use of all of the animal.  Today we have a tendency to pass by some of the most tasty parts. 

Next we were on our way to Kensington and China Town.  Since I hadn’t eaten for at least a couple of hours we stopped at a dumpling house.  Even at three in the afternoon it was crowded.  The food was not the usual Chinese-American fare.  They don’t serve chow mien or Foo Yong.  What you see on the plate is marinated intestine.
