Seema Omar was born and brought up in Mumbai, but after moving to Toronto, she really missed the exciting flavours of traditional Mumbai-style street food snacks. Together with her sister-in-law, Amreen Omar, and they decided to start a new venture — Bombay Street Food— to introduce Toronto to this delicious and diverse cuisine.
Sourcing most of their produce from farmers’ markets, their combination of authentic flavours, organic halal meat, and fresh, local and seasonal produce has been a huge hit at farmer’s markets, food festivals, special events and pop ups around the city.
You can find them at the East York Farmer’s Market (850 Coxwell Ave.) every Tuesday until October 28th from 8am to 2pm.
