This Toronto Bar Will Make You Feel Like You're At A Cantina In Mexico City
"I don't really like Mexican food", said no one ever.
There's something about Mexican food that has totally captured Toronto's heart. The bold flavours, the bright colours, honestly you can never go wrong and one place to experience all that is definitely El Rey Mezcal Bar. Located at 2A KENSINGTON AVE., This intimate spot has so much to offer: amazing ceviches, oodles of different types of mezcal (an alcoholic beverage similar to tequilla), salsa music that will make you want to dance, awesome decor, and a patio that's just begging for you to day drink on it.
Don't believe us? Check out it out:
They have a variety of food including Mexican classics like quesadilla, empanadas, and tostadas, like the delicious grilled octopus pictures below.
The best way to taste their mezcal is in a flights that offers 3 different meszcals in .75 OZ portions. This feature is called 'an introduction to the world of mezcal'. Their house cocktails, like 'Open Window' (made with tequilla, meszcal, lime, pineapple and chillies) are also great options for those looking to see how meszcal plays with other flabours.via @elreymezcalbar
NOT TO BE MISSED: if you love flavourful and fresh ceviche, you have to try the ceviche that varies from day to day. Their most recent Spring Ceviche includes halibut with pickled rhubarb, radish, pistachio and fermented habanero. Yum!via @juliogua
