Mexican
On virtually any street corner in Mexico you can find people gathering amongst the aromas of fresh tortillas, wood smoke, roasted vegetables, toasted chili and grilled meats. The crowds are brought together by the work of a small group of family members who sell traditional street food from a tiny cantina, a mobile food cart, or a makeshift street stall. Although the menus they offer are small and the preparations simple, the flavours are unforgettable. Everything is fresh and the food is eaten from a couple of napkins. The goal is to stay true to a style that has existed for generations. My brother and I opened Chingón as a celebration of the flavours, music and décor that we grew up with. We invite you to explore the venue, talk to the chefs and ask any questions you may have. We view Chingón as a continuation of our home and thank you for visiting us.

    I found that it was a bit loud in the restaurant and that our food was a little cool when it came out. Everything still tasted great, but was expecting the food to still be piping hot considering the time it took for the food to come out.

    Yummy, well priced food. A little slow considering how empty they were, but the kind service and amazing food makes up for this.

    I couldn't see anything, as they only have fairy lights (fire hazard)I guess it would be an ideal place to take someone ugly of whom you were repulsed with...don't have to see their face.The staff were rude and I felt rushed.To top it all off the food was bad and overpriced.Save yourself money, turn all the lights off in your house and eat cat poo, its pretty much the same experience.
