Edgar's Latin American Food - pupusas, empanadas and tamales

sochow | Sep 15, 2007 11:35 AM

I just dropped into Edgar's on the Queensway at Royal York - I haven't been for a while but am going to a Mexican fritanga today and wanted to contribute some of those totally pupusas with some slaw and crema that come in fresh on Saturdays - alas, sold out! But we had a yummy empanada and bought some chorizo, crema and a few other goodies for my BIL who is from Mexico but can't get authentic ingredients in his neck of the woods.
I asked Edgar - who is such an authentically nice person too -- how business is. He said cheerfully that it was pretty good but admiited it's hard to get the latin american market shoppers to change their patterns and routines - but that it is coming slowly. So if you've been craving anything latin american (food, that is) you need to visit Edgar's - I really want to see this great little location last and thrive - Saturdays are the day for fresh pupusas, empanadas and I believe tamales that are sold frozen the rest of the week. Also Latin American sweets, condiments and dry goods.
