Our Toronto ‘Hood: Junction Triangle

tuckshop-front-store

TuckShop Kitchen is proud to call the growing Junction Triangle neighbourhood home. Since starting construction in our space in September 2014, the area has since developed a unique identity and strong sense of place in Toronto.

Our shop is located at the intersection of Dupont Street and Edwin Avenue in Toronto, close to one of the old Canadian Pacific Railway lines that give the entire Junction area its name. This area derived its name from the fact that it was at the junction of two Canadian Pacific Railway lines. Notably, TuckShop lies within the Junction Triangle area, which is bordered by railway lines on all three sides of its borders.

Come Celebrate Our 1st Birthday

Wow. 1 year.Grand Opening Party

I can’t believe how quickly the year has already flown by at TuckShop Kitchen, and now we’re about to celebrate our 1st birthday. It feels like yesterday when we were pitching city hall at a committee of adjustment hearing among big wig developers and angry residents raging against their building plans. Luckily for us, only heroes live in the Junction Triangle since we only received overwhelming support and love from the local community, signing petitions and promoting us on the Junction Triangle facebook page. Who can also forget the 8+ months of construction needed to convert a vacant garage and basement into a takeout restaurant and convenience store.
