Have been going to El Palenque for years and it just keeps getting better and better! They have a fairly extensive menu with something for everyone. Highly recommend their guacamole, chicken tacos and my husband's all time favourite: Cammarone en Chipotle (shrimp in chipotle sauce). Servings are generous and the staff are excellent.

Staying in York-Crosstown

Neighbourhood Profile
York-Crosstown is a sleepy area of Toronto dotted gorgeously with hills and farmland, stately homes and parks. An affluent district in parts, the stately houses at Baby Point along Jane Street are especially breathtaking, and make for a lovely wander on a clear day. Parks are bountiful in York-Crosstown, which makes it a vibrant area for outdoor play and sports, providing a break from the hustle of Toronto's busy, jam-packed city center. For a little spice after a walk in the park, the Little Jamaica area of York sports cheap, authentic food from the Caribbean. This area is restful and more orientated towards outdoor activity and the exploration of nature.
