501 College St Toronto
La Carnita is one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto, I'm never disappointed when I visit.
Mexican Street Corn (2pc)
Mexican crema, queso anejo, arbol & ancho chili powder. The corn is a must order, corn is on my top 5 favourite vegetable and La Carnita takes it to another level.
w/ ancho chili powder & Guacamole
I love how the tortilla chips are seasoned, they even taste good by themselves.
Beef Cheek Ancho braised cheek, lime avocado, green cabbage, pickled jalapeño & crispy shallots
In Cod We Trust: voltron sauce, lime crema, pickled red cabbage, green apple & cilantro
Crispy Avocado & Frijoles Beans: crispy avocado, chipotle sauce, queso fresco & cilantro
Chorizo: Chorizo, mango salsa, pickled onion, queso cotija &cilantro
My favourite taco of the night was the Cod taco, perfectly fried cod with an extremely crispy batter. The pickled cabbage and apple cut through the richness of the crema and the fried batter, SO perfect.
For dessert we got two orders of Churros
with house made cajeta (caramel)
Tres Leche Cake
Served with Ontario fruit which was strawberries that night.
I've been to both La Carnita and Grand Electric and I must say La Carnita is my go to taco joint!
From the atmosphere, service, lighting, seating and food, La Carnita wins by a land slide.
