I happened upon this place as my original lunch spot had a line going out the door. This little place is just like the name said "jumbo empanadas" It is very small and unassuming but huge on customer service and great food. I had the chicken empanada full of great flavor combinations. The pastry was cooked perfectly and crispy. I also had a Chilean salad that was fantastic. I think you will like this place for a light lunch or a snack to eat warm as you go through the different shops of the marketplace.

I try to get here every time I'm staying in Toronto and I've even driven the 70 miles into Toronto JUST to eat there (along with a take-out order). This is not a fancy place, usually pretty warm inside (winter and summer), but the food is top notch, made from fresh ingredients without shortcuts. I'm particularly fond of the cheese empanadas and the corn pie is one of my all-time favorite foods!

Excellent Chilean style empanadas in Kensington market. Had a cheese and a chicken. Both were excellent. Unique place for a nice snack when in the area.

Smells like mamas when you walk in to the place. Loved the beef empanadas and especially the very fresh salad. HIghly recommended for a quick and delicious meal.

A tasty experience and a nice vibe await you. Empanadas and Toronto are best pals, get them here! Stop in here for a snack on the way in or out of the market and be glad you did.
