El Rey is a bright mezcal bar in Toronto's Kensington Market. The bar boasts a rustic design aesthetic with raw brick walls, arched doorways and terracotta details. There are also incorporated cacti and succulent plants, Mexploitation visuals and vibrant colors throughout the space as well.
The main focus of El Rey is its enticing selection of mezcals, with approximately 35 offered currently and more to come. The mezcals are categorized by species, tasting notes and places of origin. The selection of cocktails prepares for the warm weather with drinks such as the Mexploitation, which is essentially a Mai Tai-resembling drink that comes with a terra cotta.
El Rey also serves up a menu of bar snacks such as morita popcorn and cacahuate, which is a mix of peanuts and grasshoppers. A standout item from the menu would be the 'guacamaya,' a bun that holds fried pork skins coated in creamy avocado and salsa.
