Tortas are Kensington Market’s latest Mexican craze. San Cosme’s version of the grilled sandwich mixes such neighbourhood specialties as ham by Sanagan’s Meat Locker and buns by Blackbird Baking Co. The diner’s vibrant interior also comes courtesy of local pros, +tongtong. The design studio pairs patterned tiles and a ceiling installation of vinyl ribbon and wire fencing with a mural by Stephanie Latulippe featuring Mexico City’s Angel of Independence.
