San Cosme Toronto

Toronto getting a Mexican sandwich shop

It's looking like 2016 will be a big year for Kensington Market, food-wise. We've already reported that both Jen Agg and Grant van Gameren are expanding into the area. But before they move in, we'll get to start snacking on tortas.

According to Post City, Arturo Anhalt - who's the chef and owner of Milagro - is working to open Torteria San Cosme at 181 Baldwin St., in the old Kensington's Espresso Bar space.

As Anhalt told the publication, this incoming eatery will focus on Mexico City-style street food - though don't expect to find tacos on the menu. Though that's probably a good thing, considering Kensington is already filled with excellent taquerias, from Seven Lives to El Trompo.

Bring on the sandwiches.
