Bites and Nibbles @ El Catrin Destileria


I had an assignment in downtown Toronto a couple Saturdays ago. Since we live in the suburb {bordering some farm lands, we always take advantage of the trip downtown by mixing work with pleasure. Hubby picked me up after work and had a late lunch date in El Catrin at the Distillery District.

The design of this Mexican restaurant is awesome - from the murals on the wall {created by Mexican artists} to the design of the bar! 


For late lunch, we sampled the Ensalada Destileria (papaya, mango, cilantro, pecans and grilled shrimps with tajin sour vinaigrette} Torta el Santo {braised beef short rib with queso and guacamole on Mexican bun}and Tacos el Pastor {shaved pork with pineapple and cilantro}. The papaya salad was delicious and refreshing. The rest was just OK.


For the price of the food, I expected a complimentary serving of fresh tortilla chips with salsa or guacamole like other authentic Mexican restaurants we have been. But there was none. For another 10 dollars you can have the Guacamole En La Mesa {they will make it on your table!} with chips.

By and large, it was a nice dinning experience. And oh, the drinks were great. Cheers!
