It's Taco Time
Tacofino Commissary adds to the fast-developing food destination that is East Village (formerly known as Hastings Sunrise).
Its new sleek but rustic space captures the charm and ease of their Mexican-inspired West Coast fare. Take a seat under the smart light-meets-flora ceiling installation by Bocci’s Omer Arbel and enjoy Tacofino’s take on the famous Moscow Mule cocktail with a tequila twist, the Mexican Mule ($8). Along with food truck favourites such as the Fish Taco ($5), the menu includes sharing plates like the spicy Cauliflower ($8) sprinkled with bits of crispy rice, and the Surf & Turf ($12), featuring the revelation that is deep fried lemon.
Yes, we'll share if we have to. —Anya Georgijevic
