Nice small restaurant, with great food. The guacamole with housemade nachos was to die for, and the fried shrimp taco’s were delicious!

Nice place, reminding of those street restaurants in Mexico and south america. The food is very good. It seems to be a family business with the kids serving and the mama cooking but I might got that wrong. They do not serve alcohol, nice to...More

La Tamalera is a super cute, super chic restaurant in the mile end. Their prices are reasonable, and you can really feel the Mexican authenticity in the food as well as the atmosphere. I went with a friend, and we each had the El Pastor...More

If you blink, you will miss this place as it has no street facing signage. When we backtracked to find it, the window was so dirty we couldn't tell if it was open...or if it was even still in business! It was open, but other...More
