- Since we can't currently take a trip to Mexico, Montreal Mexican restaurants that deliver are our next best option.
- See where to order from next time you get a taco craving below!
With the Government of Quebec's recent announcement of the closure of non-essential businesses until April 13, many of life's little pleasures have fallen into disrepute. Going to the movies, having a drink with friends, and going to a restaurant have all been put on hold... But, if you find yourself feeling a powerful craving for tacos, this list of Montreal Mexican restaurants that deliver is for you.
Close your eyes and think of cilantro, avocado, lime; the crackling of meat on a hotplate; the sweetness of queso frio or the power of spicy salsa — can you feel Mexico getting a little closer? We may not be able to take a trip right now, but our taste buds still can.
Tacos have become extremely popular in recent years, and thanks to this, many taquerias have opened their doors in Montreal.
While we're all couped up in our apartments, delivery is a good option to give us a little variety from the canned goods in our pantry or the frozen lasagna.
All the restaurants on this list offer delivery, either themselves or via mobile applications like Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes, or Foodora.
The Capital Tacos
Why you should order: Capital Tacos' menu draws inspiration from all corners of Mexico. You can fill your tacos with pork, beef, shrimp, or opt for the vegetarian option. They also spice it up by offering a daily menu, so make sure to look out for that!
Why you should order: The freshly made tacos are sure to make your taste buds smile. And if you opt for a burrito, they're action-packed enough to have you full for an entire day.
Why you should order: Tamalera pride itself on having chosen the "street food" niche. High street cuisine — what could be better? The menu is full of tacos, tamales, typical dishes, and vegetarian choices. And they even have a brunch menu!
El Rey Del Taco
Why you should order: At Rey Del Taco, they do Mexican food properly. Their carefully cooked dishes are filled with fresh ingredients.
Why you should order: The chef, Jacques Coutu, combines classic and modern Mexican cuisine in his menu, which contains fifteen choices of tacos, in addition to all kinds of other enticing dishes.
Why you should order: His menu offers a wide selection of burritos, quesadillas and tacos, all with both Mexican and Californian flavours. Please note that Café Cantina offers delivery exclusively in the Old Port and the Southwest district of Montreal.
T & T Tacos and Tortas
Why you should order: As its name suggests, this restaurant specializes in tacos and tortas, which are delicious Mexican sandwiches. Even though you can't enjoy its tequila cellar right now, you'll be glad you can order its tasty and pretty dishes.
Why you should order: Super Taco's menu has prices that keep clients ordering time and time again. I personally recommend the classic pastor taco, the gringa (a taco overflowing with cheese), guacamole and huaraches (Mexican pizzas).
Why you should order: This small space is normally full during weekends. But now, thanks to the delivery service, you're guaranteed to be able to enjoy their dishes, which combine Mexican and American cuisine. Beef taco, chicken burrito, or smoked brisket sandwich — the choice is yours!
Why you should order: Don Taco is a super good spot to bring your future date (post-confinement, of course). With its dozen choices of tacos and half a dozen choices of burritos, this is the perfect menu for discovering Mexican flavours one-on-one... at home.
Why you should go: This taqueria is hard to beat. With owners from Oaxaca, you can only expect to really taste Mexico on your plate.
Mezcaleros Tapas & Cocktails
Why you should order: This Mile End taqueria has developed over fifteen taco choices. They offer Mexican cuisine with a twist.
Buen provecho, Montreal!
