Where to drink micheladas in Toronto

Where to drink micheladas in Toronto

Stepping into La Carnita, no matter the time of day, always feels like a party. Between the notes of bass and killer beats by the likes of Biggie and Tribe Called Quest, packed tables of friends indulge in piles of crunchy chips and guac, fish tacos and messy bites of Mexican street corn. You can wash down all that goodness with a spicy michelada combining Corona, Clamato, habanero sauce and lime juice. Or, pucker up on the Bread and Butter, made with a Negra Modelo, lime juice and chili-salt rim.

Serving a tasty selection of Mexican street food, La Carnita now offers a second location in Riverside. The menu focuses on tacos with options including cod, tuna, beef cheek, pork, chicken and a vegetarian version. A small selection of starters and desserts — Mexican street-style, of course — rounds out this spicy menu, which also features a daily special. Talented executive chef Jonathon Hamilton runs the back-of-house. What makes this location different? Explore the local craft beer options.

New restaurants creating a buzz in Toronto's east end

New restaurants creating a buzz in Toronto's east end

La Carnita’s 2015 location joins the rapidly shifting Riverside strip, much to the delight of east ender foodies. You’ll find a warm, cozy vibe at this Mexican restaurant, due equally to charming pink neon lights and the number of people packed inside. The menu, similar to the College Street location, features signature tacos with crispy cod and bass as well as daily specials unique to the east end location. Refreshments include Agua Fresca, a minty alternative to alcohol, as well as tropical cocktails and of course, the all mighty margarita.
