(Toronto) Tacos El Asador - is it worth trying?

So, I've been thinking I want to try Tacos El Asador on Bloor.

Is it worth trying?

I know that the topic of the derth of Mexican food is a common one on chowhound, so I know not to expect miracles. But in general how is this place?

  1. Its definitively worth trying. I am a regular and have been for years. Its not mexican its el salvadorian but has latin american foods. Its a small place and not fancy at all. But the owners and nice and the food is very good and cheap. The pupusas, burritos, tostadas, tamales are all great. the guacomole too its excellent. I see people get big bowls of soup that also looks good. Try the horchata drink if they have it - its delicious!

    1. I love going here in the summer when my son has a baseball game at Christie Pits. A few of the other parents and I usually load up on pupusas, nachos, tacos(hard & soft) and horchata to bring to the park. I don't know how authentic it is as I hardly eat Latin American/Mexican food, but I do know when food is good, and this stuff is really good. Make sure you get the hot salsa, it's pretty awesome.

      1. definitely worth going. pupusas are better than the tacos, in my opinion.

        1. You can't go wrong with Tacos El Asador...it won't cost you an arm and a leg and it is very tasty!!!!!
