La Carnita

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.

Tortilla Chips 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 jalapeƱo & 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.
