Butcher shop + Catering + Prepared Food
What Toronto's Top Food Bloggers say about us:
Let me tell you about this fantastic new foodie bar in the heart of Toronto. St. Andrew Poultry located in Kensington Market has by far the BEST fried chicken I have tasted. We can assure you that all of this food is amazingly delicious, and this once former hole in the wall has reached its true potential.

The chicken is juicy and tender with a crispy coating that’s not overly oily.
I pigged out on some of Calpito's signature dishes, like her crispy Joy Fried Chicken, her Lamb Shawarma was fantastic and comes with a choice of toppings like coleslaw, tabbouleh, pickled turnips, Mediterranean eggplant, roasted-garlic hummus and Tahini sauce.
-Food Junkie Chronicles
St. Andrew Poultry was founded in 1962 by Isaac Jesin. Originally a meat processing plant, Jesin expanded the business to add a retail store that would offer raw meat and packaged goods. As a result of Jesin’s dedication, St. Andrew Poultry quickly became the supplier of choice for over 250 Toronto restaurants. Many have been customers for over 30 years. In the early days, customers were allowed behind the counter to personally select their chicken. Caribbean customers requested that their chicken be seared with a blow torch and this became a regular favorite that still draws people from all over.
After 52 years in business, St. Andrew Poultry is now owned and operated by Dr. Jerry Jesin, a dentist and passionate foodie. One of Jerry’s goals, when he took over the business from his dad, was to reinvent the retail business. As of September 1, 2014, Jerry and his team re-opened the Toronto gourmet food store with a whole new look and the addition of prepared food, food delivery and catering.
