My daughter came and picked me up for dinner. She wanted tacos and there was a new restaurant on 17th she wanted to try. It was Il Padrino. Now, the outside may not be enticing but once you get inside, you are transported to somewhere south of the border - the US border!! The restaurant is small with three booths in front of the bar, some stools around the bar, and two booths in the upper part behind the bar. And, despite being hidden away, it is a very busy place!! The first time we went, we were the only people seated. The owner and his wife chatted with us a bit. He was very friendly and explained the menu and the food items. There are many choices. The Pupusa, a Salvadorian specialty, is a must try! There are several awesome combination plates to try. We choose the #3 with 2 Papusas and 2 tacos. We also ordered some taquitos.

Ordered for delivery through Skip. Outstanding food. The pupusas were delicious, the Salvadorian breakfast was exactly how I remember having it made for me by friends Mom years ago. Could not recommend this place enough and looking forward to dining in person.

Yup, the best Salvadoran food we've had in Canada. It didn't stop with the pupusa, the tacos were excellent and the tres leches was a perfect finish to our meal. It's hidden away but don't let that persuade you from stopping in, it's definitely part of the charm
