Be Intentional.

    A highly curated chance to experience Canada’s Black-owned dining establishments. The week promises the very best of delectable and diverse African, Caribbean, and Fusion cuisine.



    The pandemic has shifted our focus away from an in-person dining experience, to takeout and delivery prix fixe options.

    This is your chance to support Canada’s Black-owned Restaurants, Caterers, and Food Trucks who have been adversely impacted by the pandemic. 


    Canadians who wish to support Black owned restaurants, and Black Canadians interested in savouring the tastes and flavours of home, or who are interested in discovering delicious menus from across the Diaspora.

    Diners “at large”, who appreciate the reputation of Canada’s diverse, Black owned restaurants, and who enjoy the exquisite and world renowned tastes of African, Caribbean, and African Canadian cuisine.

    Delve into Black Canadian cuisine and experience Canada’s exceptional African, Caribbean, and Fusion dining establishments.
