“When our family first came to Canada from Mexico City, we had to unite and look out for each other,” says Luis Morgado. “Looking back, I think this was great training for working together at  El Rincon Mexicano Restaurant. We work like clockwork.” Luis takes care of the business side of things, younger brother Jorge is the executive chef and sister Christina manages the staff.

The siblings opened the restaurant in 2004 with an important culinary agenda: to show Torontonians what real Mexican food is all about. The menu is a smorgasbord of the best of Mexican cuisine with a carefully prepared selection of appetizers, soups, salads,tortilla dishes, seafood, fajitas and traditional desserts including fried ice cream.

Best Restaurants for National Taco Days in Toronto

Best Restaurants for National Taco Days in Toronto

Sometimes one or two tacos just isn’t enough. Which is why you’ll fall for the Taco Platters (5 for $17, 10 for $34) at El Rincon Mexicana. Made with soft corn tortillas with your choice of: beef, chicken, chorizo, or pastor (marinated pork). The vegetarian taco plate ($14) won’t leave you hungry either, with its two soft flour tortillas stuffed with a layer of rice, refried beans and grilled veggie and topped with shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, feta and sour cream.

Best guacamole in Toronto

Best guacamole in Toronto

Orange and yellow walls, bright blue tiles, and food served in stoneware, El Rincon is as lively as its food is delicious. A great family spot on St Clair west, El Rincon has the creamiest guacamole in town. The vivacious space and nods to Mexican culture make this uptown restaurant an ideal way to transport yourself out of the city and into an oceanside restaurant in Punta Cana.
