Anyone tried this new taco place on the Danforth?

  1. I tried it twice. That's all!

    1. This evening I went back for a third visit, and took two friends. One of my friends has a Mexican mother and German father, so he knows his tacos as well as topfenstrudel.

      I only ordered two tacos as I had already eaten some food during happy hour at Globe. I ordered the "black and yellow" and "smoking mole" tacos. See description on this menu:

      Both of these were bigger than I remember last time, and tasted very good. A tasty and spicier hot sauce than on my last visit was served with the tacos. My friends are big eaters, so each ordered the Korean chicken, Smoking mole, and Steakhouse tacos. Both of them enjoyed their meal and want to come back, my Mexican-German friend wants to bring his wife to try it out soon. (Friday is our car gearheads night). I really enjoyed the two tacos I ate and so did my friends. It looks like the tacos have improved in taste and size. We also liked the corn tortillas used for the tacos. So if you are in the area and are wanting some tacos, I'd recommend it now. I'll definitely be back again soon.

        1. They are having their "Grand Opening" next week. Details on their FB page.

          Free tacos (2 each) and beer samples next Thursday and Friday.

            Grand opening? So basically they had a 3 month 'soft' launch??

            The place always looks empty whenever I go by.

              I've been five times now and it's been much better the last three times than the first two. And during those last three times it was not empty, more like 50 to 80% full. The last two visits were there on a Friday.

          2. Their facebook photo is a bunch of empty tables and chairs. I hope the food is good. I'll try it soon and report.

              I've been six times now, most recently this past Friday with 7 people. Everybody likes the food and some have been back with me since my third visit. Three of my friends had not been before, and they also enjoyed it. One said he would bring his wife there on Saturday, but then I found they are closed all weekend for thanksgiving.
              I'm not sure why more Chowhound people have not tried it, as they post about all sorts of other places. Tilde Taco has worked out the initial kinks and I won't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who likes tacos. I've attached some pictures from a visit on Sept 19 and another on Oct 10. The pics include:
              The Black and Yellow
              (spiced black bean and crunchy corn paired with a fresh pico de gallo, herb crema and cotija cheese)

              The Smoking Mole
              (pork slow-cooked in our special 21-ingredient chocolate mole, pulled and topped with zesty pineapple salsa,
              pickled red onions and cotija cheese)

              The Steakhouse
              (strips of sirloin paired with blue cheese slaw, roasted tomato salsa and crispy onions)

              The Bengali Fish
              (curry battered crispy fish topped with a coconut salsa, fresh cucumber and drizzled with a spiced raita)

              The Manchurian Mushroom
              (chilli-garlic sautéed cremini mushrooms topped with an asian slaw, crema and toasted sesame seeds)

              The Charred Shrimp GF. S 6
              (blackened garlicky shrimp topped with roasted tomato salsa, avocado slices and a crema drizzle

              All descriptions are taken from the "soft opening menu". I was told the new menu will be available on Tuesday.

              PS: some pics did not upload as I exceeded the 10 MB limit.

              This place is good enough for my friends and I and we will be back soon.

                Your initial posts probably were enough to put some people off the place (two times, and it was enough).... BUt, glad to hear the kinks have been worked out and it is better. Will add it to my list to try when in the area.

                1. re: ylsf

                  I only had one negative post, not "posts" and followed that with a positive one on Aug 29 and all following were positive.
