A Family Restaurant in Agincourt


Born in Scarborough in 1997, Anna Peng is a second-generation Chinese-Canadian who lived there for 15 years before moving to Markham with her family. In spite of this, Anna continues to find home in Scarborough – specifically in the area surrounding her parents’ restaurant, Great Fountain – where she has been working full-time for the past year and a half. Anna’s parents decided to move to Agincourt because it was known as a hub for Chinese immigrants and, from a young age, Anna found comfort in the way that most of her peers’ families had similar stories of migration. Now, as a young adult, Anna’s involvement in her parent’s restaurant is allowing her to connect with both her Chinese heritage and the Scarborough community as a whole. Anna hopes that Agincourt will continue to be a safe and enjoyable place for young and old families alike; a place that celebrates all cultures and people.
