Torito Restaurant Review

: Savory, creative tapas and jovial service have helped make this cozy, laid-back boîte in Kensington Market a hang-out for local chefs, off-work restaurant staff and artistes of all sorts. Given its owners are from Chile and its chef hails from El Salvador, you can expect to encounter Spanish-style tapas with Central and South American twists. Ceviche is a generous portion of fresh fish, marinated in lime juice and strewn with large kernels of toasted corn. Oranges, radishes and toasted pepitas on red oak leaf lettuce is refreshing and tasty with its sherry vinaigrette. Alternatively, braised beef tongue and cheek is melt-in-the-mouth juicy, while grilled flat-iron steak with chips is gilded with a fried egg. Go for the chocolate flan or the almond cake for dessert. The Iberia and Latin-dominated wine selection includes about 20 sherries by the glass.
