Latin Plaza on Milvan & Finch - Food Court

  • 9

There's a plaza on Finch & Milvan that has an all Latin food court at the back.
From what I saw there were food stalls from Ecuador, Peru, Cuba, Colombia, Mexico & El Salvador.
I tried the seafood soup from the Salvadorean stall. It took a while to prepare but that's ok. It was a huge bowl, freshly made and delicious. $10
We had empanadas from the Ecuadorian place while we waited. They were good too. $2 each I think.
My friend ordered from the Peruvian place. He had a beef plate that came with rice & beans and a side of plantain and salad. $10.
My other friend ordered a rice & seafood dish from the Colombian place. $10
Everything was delicious. Big portions and fresh food.
Not the swankiest part of town but you get great value for your money.

If anyone has been there before, let me know what you think.

  1. I think this was mentioned on CH a year or two ago. We tried to find it without luck! Is it easy to find from that corner, or does one need to know where to look?

      9 Milvan on the first foor below the massage parlour. It's an industrial building and doesn't have much in the way of signage. The food court's down the back. El Jacalito started out there 10 years ago.

        Thanks! I will check it out after the holidays.

    2. I decided to revive this thread to give it a little love. When Mrs. Sippi worked in the area it was my favourite place to eat if we met for lunch. It's almost like a little oasis in the city. Nothing is in English it seems and most of the people in the crowd are immigrants. I felt like I was a foreigner.

      1. I have googled around for this plaza to no avail. It's a long way to trek to without knowing whether you'll find it open. Can anyone advise of the hours of operation?

          I found a post from last month saying it's open 6 days a week, closed Monday.

            Right, open Sunday (and very busy!).

        2. This place is an awesome find. Some real good food here with none of the pretense. I'll be back once that deep fried pork belly works itself through my arteries.

          1. We only ate from the El Salvador food stall - we had their pupusas which were excellent and came with home made cole slaw and salsa. We had the pork version which they said was the best. We also shared the mixed grill of shrimp/steak/chicken with beans and plantain. Tasty. There's about another 5-6 food stalls from S. America to try out. It's at the back of the plaza, so drive around to the back and park there. Not sure what it's like at night but during the day, it's a great place for lunch and feeling like you're in a new country as we were the only gringos there.
