Published October 12, 2018 at 7:58 pm


Have you been in the mood for exceptional tacos and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get them? Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one–especially when places that serve this Mexican mainstay are plentiful across cities.

When it come to great tacos, every ingredient counts. Is the tortilla soft and able to contain all of the delicious ingredients? Is it perfectly spiced and memorably tasty? If it has fish in it, is it fried to perfection?

Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable taco joints—but only one city can have the absolute best selection. 

What places were competing?
