El Meson

Address: 1678, boul. St-Joseph, Lachine, QC

Why You Need To Go: A Mexican couple, Chef Victor Lopez and Elena Garcia, wanted to create a spot that boasts not only the amazing dishes in their home country, but the warm and inviting vibes known amongst its people. While the tacos are absolutely delicious, El Meson is also the place to try other Mexican delicacies, like Nopalitos con carne, Pescados Yucatan, Carne Asada, and Pechuga con mole.


La Capital

Address: 1096, boul. St. Laurent, Montreal, QC

Why You Need To Go: This taco and cocktail bar is found just outside of Quartier des Spectacles, one of Montreal's most exciting neighbourhoods. Try one of the many styles of taco, like the super popular birria taco, or you can go big or go home with one of the generously sized quesadillas.


Taqueria La Matraca

Address: 4607, rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, QC

Why You Need To Go: This spot in the Plateau proves that when it comes to tacos, it's not about anything fancy, but about making food with the most quality ingredients and above all else, love.

Address: 51, rue Roy E., Montreal, QC

Why You Need To Go: Chef Nick Hodge has brought comfort food and Tex Mex to the people of Montreal in a way that combines the grit and the creativity of the Plateau.

And, well... you really do.
