Tacos 101 ~ 101 Dundas St. East ~ (416) 362-8226

Tacos 101 is a brand new Taqueria on the Ryerson campus at Dundas & Church. Now, let’s be honest… it’s all too easy to run up a hefty tab at many downtown taco joints and still be hungry when all is said and done. Chef Julio Campos is aiming to change this, slinging out some…

Completo ~ 5 Coady Ave ~ (416) 901-9233

Completo is a new(ish) sandwich shop that has evolved from a stall in Kensington Market to a Leslieville storefront (where Le Matin Bakery used to be) on Coady Ave, just north of Queen St E. There’s seating for our party of five at the counter inside. We decide instead to sit on their patio and enjoy one of the last warm afternoons…

It seems fitting then to close out my first year of blogging by documenting one of my favourite dining experiences of 2011. Thanks to Lora, Joe and Ford for joining me and…

Tacos El Asador – 690 Bloor St W – (416) 538-9747

I had lunch this week with my El Salvadoran friend Manuel, and asked him where one can find the best Salvadoran food in the city. He invited my wife and I over to his annual Christmas Eve food party, assuring us it was the best. If he and his family go out for Salvadoran food, their go-to is often Tacos El Asador. Tucked…
