Latin food truck Gourmet Gringos opens a sit-down space at Bathurst and St. Clair
The winter months can be tough on Toronto’s growing fleet of roving restaurateurs. Gourmet Gringos, the Latin food truck that debuted last fall, has a solution to the seasonal lull: a new 25-seat restaurant at Bathurst and St. Clair. The bright orange space, formerly used as the company’s commercial kitchen, sticks to the street food formula that made the truck a hit: slow-braised pork shoulder tacos; hand-pressed Argentinian empanadas; and, on Sundays only, pork pozole soup (reportedly an excellent hangover cure). The drinks list is limited to soda for now, but a liquor license shouldn’t be too far off. Also in the works: two additional brick-and-mortar outposts, including one at Yonge and Bloor.
