El Trompo, 277A Augusta Avenue (at Oxford), Toronto, Ontario, M5T 2L4, 416-260-0097

Hilary recommended this Mexican restaurant in Kensington Market. NOW recently gave this restaurant three Ns (out of five), saying that it "pumps out first-rate southern Mexican street food without the Tex-Mex watering-down."

I have eaten there three or four times since getting this recommendation, and I can report that the food is very good.

Agreed, El Trompo is one of my family's favourites too! The vegetarian fajita is served with corn tortillas, and is an amazing bargain.

I'd suggest walking a block south on Augusta when you're at El Trompo to pick up a corn pie to go from Jumbo Empanada. It's GF and tastes great. My wife prefers it to their empanadas.
