Chef Aon provides locals with fresh, traditional Thai flavors she acquired growing up just outside of Bangkok. Named after the largest outdoor market in Thailand, Jatujak is sure to be an after-swim meet up place for those beaching at the Bluffs come Summer.
Pizza La Rosa is Scarborough’s option for halal pizza. Located on Victoria Park, Pizza La Rosa serves pizza, salad, poutine, chicken wings and calzone’s – all halal.

Yogi’s Pizza and Wings is a certified halal pizzeria dealing primarily in take-out. They offer a pork-free pizza experience by substituting pepperoni and bacon with all-beef alternatives. The family owned operation has garnered high praise since opening just six months ago – especially for the soft, doughy, garlic bread-like crust.
