Real deal Mexican Food
A poster in a thread disputed my claim that there are no Mexicans in Ontario, so I am wondering, where is the best Mexican food?
7 Lives is the go-to for one Mexican friend. The owner is an ex pat San Diegan of non-Mexican descent, and the food tends to be Baja/Tijuana-style but my friend says 7 Lives produces his favourite tacos anywhere, including any he's tried in Canada, Mexico and the States. In addition to the tacos, he also likes the pozole that 7 Lives makes on weekends.
El Trompo, just a few steps from 7 Lives, is owned by people of Mexican descent who were raised in Mexico (that might matter to the OP, since the OP was under the impression no Mexicans lived in Ontario), and serves dishes you won't find at 7 Lives. I like the tacos al pastor. http://www.eltrompo.ca/index1.html

Here's an article in a Mexican newspaper about the Mexican food scene in Toronto:
