Tita la Guanaca ~ 1028 St Clair W ~ (416) 656-3519

There is a lot of great food on St. Clair West. Tita la Guanaca (1028 St Clair Ave W) is no exception. Translated as The Little Salvadorian, this take-away makes great Pupusas. Corn-flour dough is wrapped around Pork, Beans and Cheese and is fried for 5 minutes a side. Hot off the grill, they top…

Tenoch ~ 933 St Clair Ave W ~ (647) 345-0165

Tenoch is an unpretentious tacqueria on the St. Clair West strip @ Oakwood. Void from the frills of the uber popular places downtown, the crowds will surely follow once word gets out.

In today’s world of the ten/fifteen-dollar lunch, it’s always good to know a few places that don’t break the bank… and still do it up big-style despite being a good value. We all have a few…

Khmer Thai – 1018 St. Clair Ave. West – (416) 654-0609
