The other day as I walked my pooch through Kensington market I stumbled upon La Tortillaria. It's where It's All Good used to be, behind Toronto Western Hospital. Through the window I could see a large metal machine that suggested they might actually be making their own tortillas!

Today I was at the hospital for an appointment and decided to investigate further. Happy day - it was open!. They opened yesterday, in fact. The tortilla making machine wont be pumping out fresh tortillas until the 22nd, but you can still try any of their taco fillings in a store bought soft corn tortilla. There were about 8 or so varieties of fillings from their hot table.

Having already had lunch, I only sampled a chicken one for $2.50. The chicken was full of flavour, tender and moist. I will say it was not hot enough - both in temprature and spice and I didn't notice their condiments (hot sauce, cilantro and onion) until I was done. I'm sure they would have made a big difference in the spice department, and overall texture/freshness of the taco, but I enjoyed it nevertheless.

I was also given samples of their in-house made drinks - Jamaica flower and Orchata. Both tasty, but the grainyness of the orchata takes some getting used to.

Can't wait until the 22nd to give it another go with a proper tortilla!
