A Mexican restaurant unlike any other in Toronto

My first impression of this place is great--wonderful regional Mexican food in a quaint tiny restaurant with great service. I'm dying to read more opinions from people who know more about central Mexican cuisine.

The menu is gutsier than most--tongue, beef brains, corn truffle--but with lots of less challenging dishes along side. I think corn-truffle might be an acquired taste, but I was glad to try it.

Other surprises. The ceviche was mayonnaise based and only contained marlin, vegetables and herbs. We were very surprised, but found it very good. Other standards--Cochinita pibil, guacamole, and margaritas--were as good as I've had in Mexico, and much more reasonably priced than other places I like in Toronto.

The parent restaurant, Embrujo, has small portions, so we way over ordered. Two appetizers, two mains, and a side of rice and beans was way too much for two hungry, heavy-eaters. I'd suggest ordering a course at a time. I can't wait to hear what other people think.
