El Arriero is a great Colombian and Mexican restaurant on Jane St. a little bit north of Bloor. This place is the real deal where the most of the clientele speak Spanish as their first language. The Bandeja Paisa, which is a typical Colombian Cowboy breakfast, is one of their specialties and it is HUGE. The empanadas are great to start with. I have also had a fish dish here which was a basa fillet with Colombian sauce on it and that was a great dish on the lighter side. You can get good fajitas here if you want Mexican. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and have always liked it. We had a Meetup here back in 2010 and this restaurant is definitely due for another visit.
The address of the restaurant is:
276 Jane St
Toronto, ON M6S 3Z2
