Toronto is possibly the only place where the amount taco consumption rivals the numbers of those in actual Mexico.
We have adopted this food as our own and have taken it to new heights. Similar to sex, even when tacos aren't that great, they're still pretty good... So we went through the *daunting* task of naming some of our favourites:
