Tonight we happened to be in the Yonge & Eglington area looking for something to eat. Tio’s Urban Mexican looked like a cute spot so we decided to try it. We started with some chips, guac and pico de gallo. I liked that their chips were a mixture of potato and taro.
To drink I had a classic Paloma with grapefruit juice and tequila.
Nash ordered the Alambre: A popular mexican dish consisting of grilled beef topped with chopped bacon, peppers, caramelized onion jam, cheese and guacamole. It was served with crispy tostadas. I loved the sweet onion jam and the juicy steak.
I had the pork belly tacos with hoisin jus, onion jam, crispy carrot chips and orange crema. It was an interesting combination of sweet and savory.
Our food was super flavourful and we ordered the perfect amount for the two of us. It is slightly more expensive than other Mexican places but maybe that’s what the “Urban” in the name describes.
