It may not be considered Mexican food but we have to include Grumman ’78’s famous tacos. Grumman ’78 brings the south west to Montreal’s Sud Ouest. Also, look out for their food truck prowling around the city serving up their delicious tacos to Montreal’s food truck lovers!

Maïs

5439 Saint-Laurent

mais

Maïs can best be described as “latin inspired.” Only open for dinner, Maïs has become a stylish and slightly fancier spot in Montreal’s Mile-End. The menu is ingredient driven and boasts daily specials. The fan favourite is the carnitas taco served with pickled onions, salsa verde and cilantro. If you’re willing to shell some extra cash you should give their octopus starter a try!

capital

In the mood for a quick taco snack without having to sit down and waste your time? La Capital is where you should be. La Capitale is considered by many to be the producer of the best taco in Montreal. Their Tacos Carnitas is a mainstay on the menu, but keep an eye out for their beef and cheese taco of the day.
