We went out for lunch on Cinqo De Mayo.

It was a little crowded, with people to both sides of use just a foot away. There was a lineup to sit in the outdoor patio, but we were seated indoors without delay.

I think it would be less crowded on a regular day.

El Trompo never fails to please, with their authentic Mexican fare, and full menu. You can get breakfast until 3 pm, and there is a full lunch menu as well.

We ate a variety of foods, paying less than $25 for the two of us.

We tried the chicken and the beef tacos, both were very tasty. The delicate flavors of the ingredients were very apparent. The table side sauces really enhanced the flavors and added some heat to the taste. Everything is made to order and the kitchen is very fast. The restaurant itself is very basic, tables are close and definitely doesn't encourage lingering. Worth a repeat visit!

An authentic Mexican restaurant in Toronto but it missed the mark on flavor for me. It here were two options, super spicey or no flavor at all.

I love this place. It is a "must" to visit when you are in TO. The customer service is excellent, and even my Mexican friends consider these tacos as authentic and delicious.

In Kensington. Some outdoor seating. Had tacos el pastor and orange Jarritos. Was most reminiscent of Mexican food. Enjoyed it very much. Service was great. Solid place for Mexican food in Toronto
