Best Restaurants for National Taco Days in Toronto

​If you love tacos, this is your lucky day/week. Saturday, October 3rd is National Soft Taco Day and this Sunday, October 4 is National Taco Day. To celebrate the momentous occasion, I’ve gathered together the top 5 taco spots in the city:

Hapa Izakaya

602 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1B4

Fish tacos became so mainstream for a while there that even fast food chains got in on the action. But there are still a few in the city that deserve merit. One of those is Hapa Izakaya’s Halibut Taco (MP) with beer battered halibut, house made maple bacon, shoestring potatoes, and roasted jalapeño aioli on a soft taco. The creamy:crunch ratio is perfection. There’s no way you’re ordering just one.

El Rincon Mexicano

653 St Clair Ave W, Toronto, ON M6C 1A7

Sometimes one or two tacos just isn’t enough. Which is why you’ll fall for the Taco Platters (5 for $17, 10 for $34) at El Rincon Mexicana. Made with soft corn tortillas with your choice of: beef, chicken, chorizo, or pastor (marinated pork). The vegetarian taco plate ($14) won’t leave you hungry either, with its two soft flour tortillas stuffed with a layer of rice, refried beans and grilled veggie and topped with shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, feta and sour cream.

Sitting on the dock of the bay, or a patio downtown, or in the cool comfort of an air conditioned restaurant, nothing says summertime like fish and chips. Here are the city’s top 5 spots:

One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is to catch a show. Whether you’re going out to a big theatre production such as Newsies or Kinky Boots, or you’re heading off to hear a performance by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company or Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Choir, you’re going to want to eat beforehand.
