This week I visited Toronto. Again. At this rate, I might as well just live there! Actually, I’m seriously considering going to Toronto for my dietetic internship for next fall. It’s got everything I want all in one city: hospitals with reputable internship programs, friends who live there, amazing restaurants, shopping, a good art and entertainment scene… the more I visit, the more I want to live there!
This week I went to see a few friends. First I met up with Laura, who I met in my nutrition program. We took the same bus on our first day of classes and have been friends ever since! I haven’t seen her all summer though so we got some Starbucks and walked around King Street while catching up.
After, I met up with my old roommate Jill and walked around Toronto some more. We tried to find Little Italy, but we were unsuccessful in our search, so instead we ended up at Kensington Market. It’s an area with vintage shopping, fresh outdoor produce and meat markets, and lots of good hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
After almost 3 hours of walking we were joined by our high school friend Sonia for dinner. We decided to go somewhere on Baldwin Street, but we took forever to choose a restaurant! Is anyone else like that when it comes to deciding where to eat? Eventually we narrowed it down to Margaritas restaurant, a Mexican restaurant if you couldn’t already guess from the name!
I haven’t eaten at a Mexican restaurant in ages because they just aren’t very popular where I live, so I was really excited for my meal. We started off by splitting the homemade nachos and guacamole – always a must!
I had a hard time deciding on my entree so I asked the waiter for his suggestion, and he recommended the fresh fish tacos: 3 soft corn tortillas filled with grilled tilapia, served with guacamole, lime, and hot taco sauce.
I’ve never had fish tacos before, so I have nothing to compare them to, but they weren’t as amazing as I was expecting. I still cleared my plate, but I probably wouldn’t order them again. The guac was good though! And so was the company of course.
Do you like Mexican food? What’s your favourite thing to order at Mexican restaurants?
