Antojitos Street Eats

Street food is awesome. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s typically cheap. Some restaurants try to mimic street food by serving them on their menu, but it’s not the same. Street vendors tend to specialize in something specific, like the hot dog stand or the bubble waffle cake stand whereas restaurants have multiple items on their menu. However, since we lack street vendors in Toronto we had some antojitos at a restaurant.

Antojitos

Antojitos are known as Mexican street snacks. The word antojo translates in the dictionary as “a whim” or antojos as “craving” and includes things like tacos, burritos and tostadas. Even though antojitos tend to be eaten as snacks, it can also be a full meal if you eat a big enough portion. It’s normally a tortilla stuffed with various fillings. The antojitos I had above were stuffed with cream cheese, jalapenos, onion and red peppers and came with a side of sour cream and salsa verde for dipping. It’s a great shareable alternative to your usual nachos or garlic bread appetizer too.
