Mexican Fiesta!!!!!

This is an amazing restaurant, how did I not know about this place?  That introductory video to open my blog starred my friend Luis dancing with a random person in the restaurant, La Mexicana.  And yes, he was accompanied by a full Mariachi band.  If you are looking for a fiesta with an authentic Mexican style restaurant La Mexicana is the place for you. This is not a place for a quiet romantic date, however if you seek a loud and entertaining sense of community come on down to La Mexicana.

One La Mexicana location is found across from the Toronto Reference Library just north of Yonge and Bloor.  This restaurant brings authentic Mexican dishes, as well as traditions, to the city of Toronto.  La Mexicana is a family run business that brings Mexico city right to your table, literally.  This restaurant has a live Mariachi band equipped with singers that get the crowed up and dancing.  And of course you can not have the taste of Mexico unless you order a Margarita, I suggest the Guava flavoured one.

I really didn't know what to expect when my friend Armando (little man) told me about this place, but now I wish I knew about this venue sooner.  So Daryl, Luis, Maggie, Little Man and I immersed ourselves in the Mexican environment.

There are many Mexican dishes to pick from at La Mexicana:

Guacamole Dip

Fresh guacamole, salsa, and chips all for $8, I love guacamole!!!

Queso Fundido

Diced peppers and sausage inside melted mozzarella and Oaxaca cheese, with soft pita bread on the side.


For just $14 I was given a great plate full of Mexican treats.  There were three soft corn tortillas stuffed with red salsa and melted cheese then baked and topped with sour cream and onions.  But that was not all, they also gave me a salad and choice of rice or beans as a side.

We were all very pleased with the dinner and this active Mexican environment.  I mean look how happy everyone is.

La Mexicana does not only provide you with great Mexican food but also a great Mexican experience.  I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to liven up their evening in the city.  So grab your sombreros and head to La Mexicana!!!
