Great news! A taco restaurant and take-out window opened just around the corner! I’m talking I don’t even have to cross the street to get my hands on these little beauties. Have a look at what El Camino, which opened just a few days ago on Elgin street, passes through the window:
My first trip (of which there will be many) I ordered 2 pork tacos and 1 beef, and both were UNREAL. Chris also gave a thumbs up to the crispy fish taco, and lamb is an option as well. The tacos all come standard issue with set toppings like avocado, pickled onions, radish, cilantro and fresh lime. The meat is cooked to absolute juicy, shred-y flavour perfection; the beef has a hint of five spice and a nice spicy kick while the pork is tender and sweet. Did I mention they make their own tortillas? Life is good 🙂 For $4 each, this place is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood!
UPDATE: My second trip to El Camino wasn’t that long after the first. This time I ate in the restaurant and it only made me love this place more. What you see below is evidence of this feast: the creamy guac, perfect margaritas, and tacos of course. Lamb, pork, beef and 3 crispy fish. Just scrumptious.
