Toronto’s newest food festival, Asialicious, has arrived amidst fears regarding the novel coronavirus (recently named COVID-19) outbreak, affecting many businesses across the city. The festival is spearheaded by Dr. Ken Ng of the Federation of Chinese Canadians in Markham (FCCM) and Catherine Hou of the Chinese Cuisine & Hospitality Association of Canada, with hopes to drum up some much-need business for the Asian restaurants across the city that have suffered from discrimination due to misconceptions on the virus.
The festival, which runs from February 14 to February 28, 2020, will showcase what Toronto’s Asian food scene has to offer through special promotions, in-store or online deals and daily tasting events.
