Hot Dining: Three Top Spots for Tacos

Make that summer feeling last a little bit longer with a meal at one of these top spots for tacos and other Mexican delights.

1  Two former Black Hoof chefs put their stamp on Toronto dining at Grand Electric, a lively little spot that slings superb tacos with meats like pork belly, Baja fish, beef cheek and spicy chicken.

Originally a pop-up enterprise, La Carnita became a bona-fide restaurant a few months ago, and is packed nightly with diners enjoying imaginative tacos plus a few other Mexican street-food options.

It’s the least hyped restaurant on this list, but Playa Cabana is no less worthy. A large menu offers tacos, naturally, but also a variety of burritos and house specialties like a chipotle wagyu burger.
