Mexicana Grill (Bathurst & Wilson)
Anyone tried this place? I'm secretely hoping its a hidden gem but haven't had a chance to check it out.
I haven't been for ages . . . . but I recall the tortilla soup being very tasty - nice balance of chicken flavour and lime.
Haven't tried it, but does anyone know if it's La Mexicana from a few blocks south on Bathurst, moved north a bit, or is it completely new, and just using a similar name?
I'm skeptical, only because that location just doesn't seem to do well. After Szechuan King moved out (which never seemed busy), it's never done well - the last place was a Turkish restaurant called Istanbul Cafe (or something like that), and it lasted maybe a year.
So there are 2 places within about 5 blocks....there is La Mexicana Grill which is on Bathurst NORTH of wilson on the west side near Steve's which opened about a month ago and then there is LA mexicana on Bathurst South of Wilson on the east side.
I live near both, have yet to try the new one, but go to the old one quite a bit...its pretty good- not solid though. If you want better, there is a little mexican place on Bayview south of eglington North of St. Clair that is pretty good on the west side neat the wing place
