Born and raised in Los Angeles, Ryan moved to Toronto to be with his number one ESE´, Peter. Ryan began cooking to alleviate his homesickness for the unique style of Mexican food found in LA. This led to numerous pop-ups around town including the Toronto Underground Market and the start of ESE´; which is slang for a close friend. That's how Ryan and Peter approach their cooking, as though a friend would be coming over for dinner.
ESE creates classic Mexican dishes with innovative ingredients and techniques that highlight the unique culinary landscape of Los Angeles.
We're excited to be part of the March Junction Flea! Come stop by and watch as we make handmade tortillas to order for our tacos. There's nothing quite like a fresh tortilla.
