Hey guys! The great thing about being in downtown Toronto is that there is an abundance of awesome places to eat at. With that in mind, I’ve decided to start a new mini-series called “Downtown Food.” In said series, I will do a casual review of some of the most popular restaurants and eateries. A slight emphasis will be put on locations closer to Ryerson campus, but all food joints are game!
This week I trudged all the way to Kensington Market in order to find the best tacos the GTA had to offer. I was a man on a mission, with one thing on my mind – TACOS. I had heard rumors of “the famous downtown tacos” and, after a bit of research, plugged in the address of Seven Lives Taco on my phone.
Arriving at the footstep of the small joint, I entered the doors of Seven Lives Taco to find a lineup of 4-5 people. This place was BUSY! Decorative pillows, a wooden table inside and more outside, and a general Mexican setting were some of the things that caught my eye. To see what all the fuss was about, I preceded to order a “Baja Fish” taco. It was served with battered and deep fried mahi-mahi, with a top of some fresh veggies and their house sauce. I took my first bite and a chorus of instant euphoria struck.
I swiftly ordered another taco – where had these things been my entire life? Next on the plate was an order of their “Camarones A La Diabla,” basically a taco filled with spicy shrimp and melted cheese. It too was delectable, although it had more of a sharp, zingy flavor to it than the tangy, creamy deliciousness that was the “Baja Fish” taco. Order up!
I had a great time at Seven Lives Taco! Their food was great and their environment supplemented it, but I can imagine that they get quite busy around lunch time. Do you have a particular restaurant that you want me to visit next time? Fire off in the comments below!
Until next time, happy eating!
