A Wychwood Heights Culinary Institution | El Rincon Mexicano Restaurant by Zachary Rosvelti


Along St. Clair Avenue West in the Wychwood Heights stretch near Wychwood Avenue lies a restaurant referred to as El Rincon Mexicano Restaurant or “The Place”. Offering a wide variety of authentic Mexican cuisine, their dishes are inspired by various regions found throughout Mexico, which makes for a delicious and unique dining experience.

George Morgado, owner of El Rincon states “he has had a passion for cooking ever since he was a child and with his family’s encouragement his passion grew greater. From when I was a kid I was always interested in cooking, family in general influenced me.”

What sets El Rincon apart from other Mexican restaurants, is the collection of Mexican food from all regions of Mexico. With the variety of fresh, authentic, mouth watering Mexican dishes, its no wonder El Rincon has gained so much praise amongst the St. Clair West, Wychwood Heights, Hillcrest Village, and Forest Hill communities. Whether it’s Enchiladas, Empanadas, Tacos, or the very tasty Sopa De Lima/Chicken Lime soup, George will definitely have something on his menu to satisfy your craving and hunger.

George is a big fan of the St. Clair West and Wychwood Heights communities. St. Clair West has always been diverse and unique. The blend of cultures has been able to mould the area into what it is today. The fusion of culture that exists in our neighbourhood is what made George choose St. Clair West, “It was the best place to put in the area, St. Clair has always been multicultural.”

“Community is very important, we help out the community and they help us back, its like a family, it means a lot.”

George’s interest in the community has helped him gain quite the reputation. Patrons know when they step foot into El Rincon they will be treated like part of his family. Quality service and kindness is George’s philosophy, and it keeps people coming back for more savoury Mexican cuisine.

George further expressed “Customers appreciate the service, I make sure they leave with a smile”. Upon my return to El Rincon I will be enjoying a delectable Mexican dish, how about you?

As a further treat in the coming week, El Rincon will be featured for the Food Networks hit TV show ‘You Gotta Eat Here’. A very well earned achievement for George and his hardworking staff at El Rincon.
