New Authentic Mexican food on Bloor (wed only)

polmo Aug 9, 2007 01:24 PM

so i was recently walking by the concorde cafe (south side of bloor, a little west of ossington) when i noticed on a sandwich board - "mexican comfort food..every wednesday eve". i gave it a whirl and am glad i did.
not a lot on the menu as it is apparently a new thing there, but the food is wonderful and reasonable. nice atmosphere and service too.
i highly recommend the enmoladas (i think that is the spelling) which is chicken in a soft corn tortilla with a home-made mole sauce. the aztec soup was also quite delicious. but (!!) i talked to the chef who said the menu will be changing about once a month.
would i go back? for sure.

makes me want to attempt to make mole.

      The "Authentic Mexican Food Deprived Hounds" might start a stampede :) What's the scoop on the chef? Why only Wednesdays?

        Excellent news... i live quite close to the concorrd Connnncord or concord or however they are choosing to spell it today ( a long history of bad spelling at that place) ...am very interested in this....if you go again next weds post a menu ...will defintely check this out.....its so very toronto this, an old fashioned italian/portugese coffee bar morphing into serving authentic mexican on wednesday nights, while it also advertising reggae gigs with jamaican food....located on a strip that houses little ethiopia - with the nuance in place between those who advertise as serving eritrean or ethiopian...opposite a greek working mens club...love that strip...its messy hodge podge city - including the only nicaraguan restaurant that i know in the city.

          Speaking of Mexican, I was in Mexican Town in Detroit a few weeks ago with my friend, and we ordered flaming cheese (not sure of the mexican name) and it was sooooo good! I was wondering if anyone knows where i can get this in Toronto???

            Do you mean Queso Fundito? they give you little corn tortillas to eat it in? Several Mexican places used to have it, and I know for a fact that La Mexicana on Bathurst north of Lawrence does. La Mexicana is NOT a great restaurant but they do make a good job of queso.

              Yes thats what i mean, it came on a small skillet and it was basically melted cheese with some onions and green peppers, and it is served with tortillas! I hope its the same b/c it was tasty! Thank you!
