A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican and Salvadorian fare at True Taco on Dundas Street.
True Taco facilitates gastro fiestas with an eclectic menu of family-style recipes. Tacos ($2.50 each), the specialty of the house, come with a protein choice of chorizo, pastor, beef barbacoa, or beef tongue with a selection of homemade sauces. Unlike the feat of knotting matchsticks with one's tongue, chili relleños ($7.95) combine fire-breathing with deliciousness in the form of two jalapenos stuffed with chicken and cheese. Early eye-openers can take on a sophisticated breakfast plate of huevos rancheros ($6.95) or Salvadorian tipico with refried beans and plantains. Close out a feasting fete with crumbly-sweet churro batons ($3 each) or indulge in pastel de tres leches ($4.95), a moist three-milk cake that wields its super powers of taste over inferior two-milk cakes.
Walls lined with paintings of Central American landscapes hug the space inside True Taco as patrons self-plant in comfy booths and at colourfully adorned tables. Hanging lamps and floor-to-ceiling windows create a well-lit space, giving diners a chance to spy the full menu before ordering everything out of sheer desire.
