Boukan restaurant offers an in-dining Haitian Caribbean fusion food experience, located in Greektown Toronto. Owned by Haitian Torontonians Amir Senat, Ricardo Province. Boukan is a new culinary concept in Toronto, presenting Haitian street food in a more fun and unique way. Our style of cooking magical flavours captivates Torontonians & visitors in town. Our niche product, Fritay, are fresh to order and organic, where possible; to ensure Boukan flavours stay consistent. The food is presented in a very colourful and artistic way; and the restaurant is very warm and inviting, to make our guests feel “an at home” & welcoming vibe.
