I’ve been on a hunt for the best taco Tuesday deal in Toronto and I think I’ve finally found one. Taco Tuesdays is a traditional started in the States and has been adapted all over where select restaurants will over taco deals on Tuesdays. Many of the deals I came across here in Toronto were 3/$10 tacos which isn’t too bad. Many tacos run for $4-6 a piece on any given day. But I’ve found the best taco Tuesday deal yet, $1 tacos! Here’s my review.
When searching for a deal, I looked at 2 things: pricing and reviews. I found a lot of the pricing similar but the reviews were all over the place. There was one restaurant however that had the best pricing and amazing reviews; El Sazón de la Tia Flor. They currently have 2 locations, one in East York, and the other in North York. I went to the North York location which is closest to me. Their menu has a range of authentic Mexican food such as nachos, enchiladas and of course, tacos. On a regular day, their tacos run for 4 for $10. As for flavours, they have various meats such as beef, pork, chicken, and veggies. Their tacos come with lime, onion, cilantro, and one sauce BUT not on the $1 deal day. The best part, is you can mix and match different types of tacos and you can order as many as you’d like (I didn’t see any limits.)
We ordered 10 mix and match tacos, 1 bottle of mango Jarritos, horchata, 1 spicy sauce and 1 mild sauce, and pan dulce.
The wait didn’t take long and this location had a dine in option but we decided to take it to go. The tacos ran on the smaller size so you may need to order more than 10 for 2 people. I haven’t had tacos in years and these were perfect. They were fresh and full of flavour exactly what I was looking for in my tacos. My favourite were the pastor’s which is one of their top sellers. As for the sauce, the hot is very hot, so we stuck with the mild sauce.
For drinks we got mango Jarritos and Horchata. Jarritos is a popular Mexican carbonated drink and fit for this meal. It was my husband’s drink but I got to try a bit. I’ve had Jarritos before but never mango flavour. It was good but a bit too carbonated for me. My drink of choice was the horchata. Horchata is a plant based spiced drink usually from white rice. It’s not thick but sweet and flavourful. This is my second time trying horchata and it was just as good as I can remember.
Lastly for dessert we got the pan dulce which translates to “sweet bread”. We went for the elote shaped one. It was very dense with strong cinnamon taste and coated with sugar. Due to how dense it was, it’s best to enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee.
Overall, I have found myself a new taco tuesday deal in Toronto! I will DEFINITELY be heading back. Not only do they have the best taco Tuesday deal, but they have it twice a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. So even if you miss Tuesday, you can still go and get the same deal on Wednesday.
