Tacos el Asador
690 Bloor West, 416-538-9747
There might not be the cellphone feeding frenzy that surrounds Grand Electric and La Carnita, but this low-key cantina in Koreatown is more than worthy of similar buzz. Ignore the decor and focus on the plates - Salvadorean spins on Mexi-classics like fish tacos with correctly textured guacamole and budget veggie burritos, all stoked with house-made h-h-hot sauce.
