With a variety of ever-evolving mezcals, small plates and tempting desserts served in a warm rustic decor, El Rey is the perfect spot to sample traditional Mexican eats. Grab some of the best seats in Kensington Market in the summer on the front patio.

You must order: Gorditas de camaron with a thick tortilla stuffed with shrimp, refried beans and avocado.

Critic reviews:

“El Rey Toronto first opened its doors in the Spring of 2016, with Julio Guajardo and Kate Chomyshyn running the kitchen. Fans of the Mexican feast will find happiness in Julio and Kate’s collection of bar snacks inspired by the culinary traditions of Oaxaca.” – Dobbernation Loves
