You Gotta See What We See

A series featuring Toronto insiders

Meet Toronto Insider: Simu Liu

"Toronto is very much a mosaic of all different stories, tastes and perspectives coming together and coexisting. I truly think it's one of the most special places on earth."

Simu Liu is a proudly Toronto-raised actor and author. He is widely known for his roles as Shang-Chi in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as Jung Kim in the Canadian sitcom Kim’s Convenience

Toronto’s theatre and art scene have played a major role in the launch of Simu’s career. While he appreciates the city for many reasons (world-class restaurants and top-tier sports teams to name a few), Simu's favourite thing about Toronto is its people. 

Simu's Top Toronto Picks

Top Toronto restaurants: Pai, Sabai Sabai, Patty King, Super Fresh, Khao San Road, DaiLo, Fishman Lobster Clubhouse, Hong Shing, and The Alley for Bubble Tea

Can’t-miss Toronto event: The Toronto International Film Festival. It's always such a special part of the year.

Hidden Toronto gem: The Toronto Night Market, which is an Asian food market in Markham. There are stalls where you can buy street food, play games and eat really awesome food that reminds me of my childhood.
