“Experience real tacos in Montreal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Visited this little taqueria by chance.

It was not very busy during the lunch hour.

The food was excellent and affordable, but the portions small.

The tortas (sandwiches) were very nice too. The only thing missing was a better and true-to-Mexico bread.

For dessert they have both flan and arroz con leche.

I'd definitely go back.

“Not your typical chain -style Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten Mexican food in montreal for decades , and never taken it seriously. Same old stereotypical hard tacos, burritos and other non-authentic amusing junk. Well this is the real deal. A taco joint (otherwise known as a Taqueria) which is right from Mexico (also popular in the US states north of Mexico ). Soft tacos with a choice of several fresh and delicious fillings. Also great was the Mateaca signiature sandwich . How about a tamarind soft drink ? Or a Coke in A Glass Bottle ! Oh... And leave your credit card at home. Cash only (you know, those sheets of paper or plastic with numbers on them ?
And most of the clients that night were Hispanic . That says it all . Enjoy !
