El Toro, a trendy new Mexican tapas bar, to open in Durban North this weekend

Durbanites can look forward to a new authentic Mexican eatery, set to open on the Mackeurtan Avenue strip on 10 October.

Serving up Mexican tapas and, of course, plenty of tequila, El Toro will fuse old-school Mexican and Spanish classics with some rediscovered secrets of Aztec cuisine.

Dishes will include succulent glazed pork belly with burnt corn mash, citrus-and cocoa-seared ribs, tequila-minted granita and Valencian-style paella. There will also be a dedicated nachos section with interesting options such as refried bean mash and aubergine ghanoush; or grilled hake and mozzarella. Dessert options will include churro bites dusted in star-anise sugar, and ice cream with Mexican flavours and a spicy choc sauce. They’ll also be throwing in some more local offerings, such as homemade paneer cheese with braised pulled lamb, and seared mussels, to name a few.

The colourful and flamboyant new space is the latest to join a host of restaurants in the up-and-coming foodie suburb of Durban North. El Toro opens its doors for lunch on Saturday, 10 October. Get there early to grab a spot, as they won’t be taking bookings.
