Sunny’s Chinese just bought a spot in Kensington and is opening a new sister restaurant

First coming onto the Toronto food scene as a pop-up in November 2020, Sunny’s Chinese is finally opening a brick-and-mortar storefront and is also currently working on opening a sister restaurant serving similar fare.

Known for serving up tasty dishes that highlight the distinctive cuisines of China’s different regions, Sunny’s Chinese will open at 60 Kensington Ave. in spring 2022.

“Sunny’s will be taking a small break before picking back up in Spring 2022 at our brand new digs,” reads a recent Instagram post. “We’re excited to be operating out of such an iconic Toronto location where we’ll be able to serve you the Sunny’s flavours you know and love. Here, we’ll focus on the wok and charcoal grill along with beer slushies and natural wines.”

In the meantime, Sunny’s will be working on opening its sister restaurant, Mimi Chinese. While there’s not yet a website or a menu listed for the new venture, Mimi’s Instagram page confirms that the spot will offer regional Chinese cuisine committed to “exploring the history and depth of China’s many provincial food cultures.”

Mimi was conceptualized before Sunny’s was even a twinkle in our eye,” the same post reads. “It’s been 2.5 years in the making, and it’s finally starting to feel like the timing is right. The MIMI menu will focus on regional Chinese cuisine with an emphasis on southern Chinese food, paired with great wine, sake, and cocktails. We know that those of you who have enjoyed Sunny’s will equally enjoy this new experience.”
