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.
