Walk in and soak up that fiesta feeling! There’s a new Mexican restaurant in Toronto and you’ve got to see it for yourself.

Nestled in the heart of Toronto, Mezcantina is a cantina-inspired restaurant that celebrates Mexican flavour with traditional dishes along with innovative cocktails that will send your tastebuds on a vacation. 

Mezcantina is not just another taco place. Their menu draws inspiration from the evolving culinary trends and hyper-region cultures of Mexico, particularly the rise of modern cantinas offering elevated small plates, known as “botanas.”

Step through the door and you’ll spot the bar lit up like an episode of Miami Vice. Start your experience with a taste of fine Mezcal or Tequila – it will completely change how you think about Mexican cocktails.

If you really want to take it to the next level, ask about their ancestral Mexican fermented beverages like Tepache and Tejino – they used to be reserved only for royalty!

Afterwards, you can explore the menu of botanas (small plates) available all day long. From breaded meatballs served over a savoury chipotle and tamarind sauce to the succulent Braised Octopus served alongside a velvety “Mole Verde” sauce.

Their head chef crafts recipes to highlight the unique tastes of different regions. Take a journey to Oaxaca with local meats like duck served with the complex flavours of Mole Negro, or the seared Lamb Chops spiced with avocado leaves. 

It’s a journey across Mexico in every single bite!

Mezcantina also has two patios set up in an urban backyard surrounded by the neighbourhood’s condo-centric community. If you live nearby and don’t feel like cooking dinner – don’t!
