The spirit of the popular Kensington Market taqueria is alive and well at El Trompo Movil, a truck providing all the flavor from the original brick-and-mortar, and adding the actual street food element that that's so integral to Mexican food. A family-run operation, Hector and Lucero Lopez are serving the Toronto community a more stripped-down version of their family recipes that made the main restaurant so popular. Grab yourself some tacos or tortas (or both) and post up on the street, the way they do in Mexico.
The tacos are served street-style, on corn tortillas with onions, cilantro, and salsa. You won't go wrong with any of the meats or veggies, but you'd be making a huge mistake to sleep on El Trompo's al pastor (citrus-marinated pork), the crown jewel of the Mexico City taco street food scene. Served with pineapple, tacos al pastor are one of the best salty/sweet combinations in the entire food game. In fact, El Trompo's al pastor is so on point that they named themselves after the trompo, AKA the vertical gas grill that's become synonymous with the beloved meat. Need these tacos in your life? Book El Trompo for your next event, and give the gift of al pastor to your guests. They'll thank you.
