Shawn Adler’s tacos are unlike any other tacos in Toronto—and that’s saying a lot. The Ojibway Taco, the Kensington kitchen’s signature item, is comfort food at its finest. Adler—who also runs the Flying Chestnut Kitchen in Eugenia and a popular food truck—piles beef chili, veggie chili, jerk chicken or smoked pork shoulder on dense fry bread, then loads the whole thing up with tomatoes, cheddar cheese, sour cream, beets, corn shoots and cilantro. It’s flavourful and filling—in other words, it’s excellent cold-weather food. One special pairs perfectly cooked pickerel from Lake Nipissing with a massive side of fry bread. Daily brunch includes poached eggs, smoked salmon and a goat cheese cream sauce served on—you guessed it—more fry bread.
