Our kind of Mexican
We like Mexican food as much as the next girl. Singing waiters in sombreros? Not so much.
Enter Ta Chido, a charmingly kitschy resto that is the polar opposite of the seedy downtown eateries that dominate the Mexican scene in Montreal.
The specialty is the torta, a Mexican flatbread sandwich garnished with mayo, cheese, black beans, tomatoes and onions. We chose the chipotle chicken ($8) and loved its fresh flavour.
Other scene-stealers include the cucumber margarita ($7), served in a mason jar, of course, the black and white mural, and the elaborate collection of toys on display.
