We were walking around Canmore looking for a place for dinner. Typically, I don't eat Mexican food when traveling simply because I live in Texas where there are loads of Tex-Mex and Mexican restaurants. However, I felt like something different after 7 days of eating out while in the Rockies so we decided to give this place a try. It was surprisingly good.
The restaurant is run by two people: a man from Mexico City who works in the kitchen and a woman who is Japanese who works in the front of the house. I had a margarita which was fine but not great. It was, however, made with fresh lime and not sour mix so kudos for that.
We had tacos al pastor, carnitas tacos, shrimp with avocado salsa and tortilla soup. The tacos al pastor were some of the best I've ever had. The pork tasted like it came off a trompo and they were served with pineapple like they should be. The shrimp dish was very good although it needed a bit of salt. The soup was different than other versions I've had; it was a bit creamier. It was delicious though and would be a great treat in the colder months. The carnitas taco was fine but nothing amazing.
This is authentic Mexican food and worth checking out.
