Best Mexican in Toronto

Huevos Gourmet | formerly South Etobicoke now Mississauga

**Update- Huevos Gourmet has moved locations from South Etobicoke to Mississauga.**

Having lots of tasty reliable breakfast spots in the neighbourhood is always a bonus, but having one that serves up a plate of delicious huevos rancheros is the best ever. Huevos Gourmet on the Lakeshore serves authentic Mexican and all-day breakfast so you can get your fix of huevos allllll day long just like this:


I'm obsessed with my morning coffee and I love how there is a choice of a medium or dark roasted brew. The entire menu is delicious whether you are wanting brunch or lunch. On the Lakeshore just west of Islington, with plenty of paid parking spots nearby. Rosie :)

Los Colibris | Theatre District: NOW CLOSED

**Update: Renamed Colibri, it is now located in the Assembly Chef's Hall.**

Located in the Theatre District right across from Roy Thomson Hall, Los Colibris (which means 'the hummingbirds') is Toronto's first upscale Mexican restaurant. It has a really cool decor, excellent service and inventive dishes. The Tijuana Caesar salad is covered with smoky homemade chorizo sausage, cotija cheese, and a Caesar dressing infused with anchovy and pomegranate seeds.

The flat iron steak was very good, but the lightly spiced braised lamb shank with ancho and chipotle was outstanding.

Chef Elia Herrera who grew up in central Mexico is a brilliant pastry chef and the desserts at Los Colibris are remarkable. The chocolate flan is a stunning creation with burnt milk ice cream, guajillo orange confit and nutella wafer.

I forget what this was. I had a lot of white wine and cocktails with really good tequila by this point. But it was so good!

Los Colibris features an impressive selection of Mexican craft beers and tequila-based cocktails, and a reasonably priced wine list. The 'Fin de Dias' was loaded with three ounces of cazadores blanco tequila, campari, lime juice, agave, pale ale float, and grapefruit zest.


Fun, fancy and most importantly very flavourful. Rosie :)
