Le Petit Coin du Mexique’s Tacos Al Pastor
2474 Jean-Talon E.
These tacos have an insane flavour profile. The pork is cooked on a vertical spit while marinated in a sauce that has both chillies and pineapples, so it has a bit of a sweetness to it but still keeps its Mexican spice.
Icehouse’s Mahi Mahi Taco
51 Roy E.
The perfectly done, crispy, fried fish in Icehouse’s tacos, accompanied by their tangy coleslaw, will be sure not to disappoint.
El Rey Del Taco’s Tête de boeuf tacos (tacos de cabeza)
232 Jean-Talon E.
If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, then check these tacos out. Unlike regular beef tacos, they’re made from the meat in the head of a cow. A little strange, but still insanely delicious!
