The BEST Mexican food in Canada
Posted on 04 / 02 / 2010
My husband and I discovered this restaurant in January 2010 and we've since eaten there about 5 times (as of end of March!). The food is not only authentic and delicious (everything from the cactus salad to the guacamole, including the vegan gluten-free tamales and other dishes) but the chef will go out of her way to ensure that the dietary needs of her patrons are met. Seriously, it's difficult to eat out when on a vegan / gluten-free / soy-free / nut-free diet. This place is outstanding. Yes, the service is slow - yes, it takes time for the food to get to the table - and yes, the place could use a facelift (from the outside banner to the tables and lighting). But everything is made fresh, and you know what? This is a small, family-owned restaurant where many of the other patrons come from Central and South America. Need I say more? OH YEAH, Veronica (the chef) had me taste the Daiya cheese that VegNews has been raving about since early 2009. Mmmmmmmmmmmmhhhhhh... Mex-I-Can....
The only reason I'm not rating this restaurant as a 5 is because it also serves meat - therefore, in HappyCow terms, the best rating can only be 4 out of 5.
Quality of food, Vegan menu items, GLuten-free menu items
Slow service, Restaurant could use beautifying...
