Since I have been mostly eating leftover turkey, ham, and stuffing for the last few days, when my friend Lisa (my Running Date date) asked me yesterday if I wanted to hit up a new Mexican restaurant in her Toronto neighbourhood, I was immediately down. I needed some new flavours in my life.
The restaurant was called Guacamole and was located on St. Clair West.

I love Mexican food, and I make it often for dinner, but for some reason I rarely go out for Mexican. This definitely needs to change. Our lunch was amazing!
We started with complimentary homemade tortilla chips (which were still warm), guacamole and salsa.
We demolished the chips in minutes, and were immediately brought a second round. That guacamole was really garlicky, and really good.
The menu was very informative.
We loved that they included the Wikipedia definition of a taco on their menu, in case anyone is unsure. Very helpful. And do you hear that McDonalds and Tim Hortons (Hourtons)? You are selling tacos!
I ended up ordering the chicken enchiladas, which came with rice and black beans on the side.
Holy mother of all things delicious, those were good. A huge portion for lunch (that would be my only complaint about this place – no lunch menu), and I had planned on packing half of my plate up and saving it for later, but nope. I ate it all. So good.
Lisa ordered the tilapia, which I had a bite of. It was also delicious.
We were really impressed with this place. I’d totally go again. Our server was pretty awesome also.
What is your favourite ethnic food?
I don’t know if I can decide. I really love Japanese, Thai, and Mexican. Oh, and Greek. And Italian!
