El Trompo, Tacos al pastor

So some time ago while walking through the Kensington Market - hungry - my companion and I decided to stop for some Mexican grub. The place, as said in the title, is El Trompo, Tacos Al Pastor. Located just off of College street on Augusta.

I cannot recall if the nacho chips were complimentary or if we ordered them, or maybe they came with the Guacamole. There was a complimentary Salsa Verde however - which was quite tasty with just the right amount of heat.
The chips them selves were good as well. Thick, sturdy, but not had and unpleasant.

The guacamole was rich, thick, and very tasty.

For beverages we had guava margarita's. They were quite nice, I've never ventured to margarita flavours outside of the traditional lime, so it was a welcome change of pace.
For mains we split the Taco's Al Pastor (being within the name of the restaurant it seemed like a straight forward choice). They arrived on what seemed like house made tortillas with well seasoned piece of pork, onions, cilantro, and pineapple. Whilst not as plentiful or filling as perhaps would have been desired, non the less they were tasty, and a welcomed departure for the fast food taco's Ive eaten most of my life.
