It’s hard to walk two blocks without bumping into a burrito joint. Sadly, most are about as authentic as that fake ID you bought on Dundas Street in Grade 11.

That’s what makes Chinos Locos (Translation: Crazy Asians) such an interesting find. Partners Victor Su and Minh La started with a base of Tex Mex cuisine, and married it to a host of fresh Far East flavours. Typical toppings include a mix of guacamole, cilantro, tomatoes … chow mein noodles, and edamame.

Strange? No, inspired.

These Chinos Locos have taken the best of Toronto’s multicultural fusion and resuscitated a tired food category in the process.
