If you're ever looking for some delicious pupusas this is the place to go! I've been coming here with my family ever since they were on Kennedy road. The pupusas are delicious as are the quesadillas and the Horchata. All prices are very good and the food is well worth the amount.

I really enjoyed this place. We had the pupusas with beans and cheese. They were so deelish but I wish they did some with chicken or beef. The only meat they use for pupusas is pork. The main plus is that this item has no gluten. We had a lunch for 2 for $20 and we were stuffed.

Comida Typica El Salvadorena! Whenever I come wee I always eat the tacos de polo and chicharon y queso pupussa. I love El Salvadorean food. There are many other food items you can grab here especially on te weekends! On the weekends they serve soups! Yummy!!

Just got back from our first visit to El Pulgarcito, and I'm sure it won't be our last. The restaurant is decorated in "Cheap and Cheerful"; it's very modest but nice. The television on the wall is permanently on and tuned to spanish music videos. It was a bit distracting but the younger family members enjoyed it. We ordered the... More

We can't wait to back. The food was great. The service was friendly and efficient. It doesn't look like much but it is one of the best restaurants we have found in Scarborough. The menu is simple and freshly made. We will be back and we will take people back with us.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
