Affectionately named after the owner’s grandmother, Fonda Lola has brought the rustic charm and delicious cuisine of Mexico City to the energetic Queen West neighbourhood of Toronto. Designed to look like a Mexican beachfront bistro with painted ceramic and items brought back with the owner, Ernesto Rodriguez, to help showcase the authentic dishes paired with their extensive tequila collection. From family style dinners to hosting Mexican inspired fiestas, Fonda Lola’s menu is inspired by authentic recipes, using ethically and locally sourced ingredients and drinks made with wholesome ingredients.
After their launching their #ElBruncho menu earlier this year, their expansion continues with their newly designed lunch menu that features authentic Mexican street-style sandwiches served on a fresh bolillo roll with a side salad. So this wee, drop by and give one of these delicious tortas a try!
