I was visiting my sister who lives in The Junction area and she suggested we go to Cantinas for lunch. I love Mexican food, but frequently I am disappointed by the Mexican food that I try in Canada, as it is often bland, not good textures and doesn't compare to the fresh and flavourful food I have loved in Mexico. I am so glad my sister recommended Cantina as I LOVED everything I ordered. We started out with homemade guacamole and chips that was very good. I especially loved the nice selection of flavourful hot sauces that was brought to our table.
If you order 3 taco dishes (they are small) you get rice and beans that comes with the meal. The tacos come with either a crispy or soft shell and they do not resemble anything to the commercial ones you see in the supermarket. The taco choices were very interesting. My 3 choices were: 1.Chipotle marinated chicken, yellow mango, 2. Grilled fish of the day, morita chile aoili, purple cabbage and 3. a Grilled shrimp. They were FANTASTIC!!!! I had to take one home in a doggy bag, as I was very full.
The waitress was very friendly and helpful. My sister said the only downside with Playa Cabana Cantina is that if you go for dinner, it is very, very loud and hard to carry on a normal conversation. I will definitely bring the rest of my family to Cantina the next time we are in Toronto, but on my sister's advice, we will try to hit it at lunch time to avoid the crowds and noise. I can't wait to go back!
