El Trompo (Kensington Market, Chinatown, Toronto)


There is A LOT of Mexican restaurants in Toronto. I didn’t know this until I went and visited!

Toronto2010 The last night I spent in Toronto, I went bar-hopping with Ryan Taylor, Karim Bardeesy (both good friends of Meghan Warby, my lovely host in the T-Dot) and Meghan. The first Mexican restaurant we bumped into was “El Trompo”. I was pretty impressed with the variety of restaurants I came across while walking down Augusta Avenue (in Kensington Market, Chinatown).

Toronto2010 The guacamole was absolutely authentic, and the rest of the food (and drinks) were absolutely stellar. And not surprising: El Trompo is owned and staffed by Mexican nationals. I actually ordered everyone’s foods and drinks in Spanish, which was kind of neat. I’ll definitely pay a return visit to El Trompo next time I am in Toronto, for sure.

I used to like el trompo a lot. Now it’s an average on my list. Their guac and condiments still rock but last two times I was there, the tacos were dry, soup too salty and drinks were made out of pre-mixed artificial flavours. I mean, seriously. Store bought margarita mix should have no place in a mexican joint. How difficult is to squeeze limes and shake it?
