Don Chingón Cocina Mexicana
Mexican brunch residency at The Depanneur
Two veteran professional chefs bring you the magic trinity of Mexican comfort food — Tacos, Tortas, & Tamales — with a TO brunch twist.
Aaron Okada, a talented local chef with nearly 15 years in some of Toronto’s top kitchens, has joined forces with Oskar Diaz from Tampico, Mexico (where he ran several restaurants, and his mom ran a tamale business with over 35 flavours of tamales!) to create Don Chingon, an exciting new Mexican weekend brunch concept on Saturdays at The Depanneur.
A trio of pre-orderable Brunch Boxes for 2 or 4 people complements a walk-up menu of Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, along with a selection of authentic Mexican snacks, drinks, and their signature Huasteca Hot Sauce.
