Best Peruvian beef heart anticuchos in Toronto?

I'm looking for recommendations for the best Peruvian heart anticuchos (kabobs) in Toronto.

The ones at El Bodegon on College Street are very good. If you order them, make sure to ask for extra bread to absorb every single drop of that delicious anticucho sauce!

The ones at El Plebeyo at St. Clair and Bathurst were also good... although I haven't been there in a while.

Where else should I experience them?

El Bodegon
537 College St, Toronto, ON M6G1A9, CA

El Plebeyo
1453 Bathurst St, Toronto, ON M5R3J2, CA

  1. El Bodegon would have been my rec. Try the Boulevard Cafe on Harbord.

    1. Does any of them have takeout options?

        Once, on a very cold and snowy winter evening a couple of years ago, I made a call to El Plebeyo and pleaded with them to deliver the anticuchos. I guess it was a slow evening for them because they accepted. I'm not sure if anyone of these two places has regular takeout options.

          I do takeout from El Bodegon regularly, no problem.

      2. A couple of years back I visited a Peruvian restaurant on Eglington, west of Avenue road (perhaps much further west). It was okay, but it was my first and only visit to a Peruvian resto. Just throwing this out there in case someone knows the name of the restaurant.
