Our Homer’s Odyssey into Toronto’s doughnuts continues… -BHH
- O -
Mexi-Can Market’s two College Street locations are recent additions to Toronto’s limited number of small grocers specializing in authentic Mexican products. Among the pork rinds, salsas, confections and other “hecho en Mexico” products are the obligatory churros – deep fried, rolled in cinnamon sugar and filled with your choice of chocolate or caramel filling. According to BlogTO the fixings are sourced from Pancho’s Bakery in Kensington Market, but at Mexi-Can they’re conveniently made-to-order while you do your bodega-style grocery shopping. $1.50 each, 4 for $5.
310 & 1232 College Street
More Toronto Doughnuts: Bake Lab, Bonjour Brioche, Caldense Bakery, Nova Era Bakery

Well, you definitely cannot say that you are without options for quick eats in downtown Toronto. The Kensington Market and Chinatown area is lined with all manner of cheap (and sometimes cheerful) eateries and food vendors, most of which are quite spare in appearance, but fluorescent lighting notwithstanding, the eclectic economy on offer has a charm all its own. In the very least you know you’re paying for the food and not the decor.
Annd…speaking of decor, I recently walked by the new Grand Electric (from the famed ex-Black Hoofers who made pig’s head tacos a thing), it looked totally swank and it might be enough to drag my lazy butt to Parkdale! La Carnita plans on opening up shop soon and the Banh Mi Boys are serving up some good old korean tacos. So, I guess burgers are out and tacos are in for 2012?
(I’d kill for a churro right now.)
