Danforth Dragon Restaurant in Toronto

The Danforth Dragon Restaurant has brought the fiery fusion of Hakka cuisine to Toronto diners since 1999.

Customers used to complain that the Chinese food at Toronto’s Danforth Dragon was too spicy. But owner Anthony Lin will quickly explain to them that it’s supposed to be that way. His small restaurant may be decorated in kitschy Chinese paintings and traditional reds, but it serves up Indian-Chinese Hakka cuisine — a spicy take on traditional Chinese foods that includes the flavours of coriander, chilies and curry.
