Known for their globally inspired, and hand-crafted dishes, TOBEN Food by Design prides themselves on bringing inventive and delicious food to every event they participate in. They recently opened a brand-new event space in the Junction called Grace that provides clients with a one-stop shop for all their corporate and private party planning needs. The space is fully customizable based on what a client might need it for – video or photo shoots, weddings, shows, events and parties of all shapes and sizes. Directly behind Grace is TOBEN’s 6500 sq. foot commissary kitchen at, 150 Symes Road, #130, Toronto, where all of the magic they bring to the table comes to life.
In celebration of the opening of these new spaces, TOBEN is hosting a series of dinner pop-ups called LǙKЀ – Mandarin for “traveller”, in March and April. Chefs Toben Kochman and Liam Kelly have created a unique dining experience that brings elements of their travels to the dinner plate. The focus of the pop-ups is on social and playful dining with home-cooked Asian cuisines.
“This pop-up will be based around the ‘greatest hits’ that we have explored both abroad and here in our own city,” said Toben Kochman, co-founder and executive chef of TOBEN Food by Design.
“The idea behind ‘communal’ or family style dining is to promote the social and playful aspects of food.”
“We want people to share a large spread of food that they can enjoy on one plate together,” added sous chef Liam Kelly. “So, go ahead and play with your food, try out different condiments, vegetables, proteins and sauces and explore how they intermingle together.”
The dining pop-ups will be held at Grace on March 28, 29, April 4 and April 5. All events start at 7PM, and tickets are available for purchase on Eventbrite.GET YOUR TICKETS NOW
