Tacos Recipes and More From Toronto

Best Tacos in Toronto

This is just a little blog post of my venture out when I visited Toronto and found a unique restaurant called Tacos Baos in Toronto. They serve a really good al pastor street taco at a street price $2.75. Being from out west and frequently visiting Toronto I’ve always had tacos ranging from $5 and up to $10. This isn’t something I would call street when the price goes up to $5-$10. If  you’ve ever been to tacos el gordo in Las Vegas than this is the next best thing to Al pastor street tacos you can find in Canada or in Toronto. While I’m writing this I decided to provide the recipe that I found in my next youtube video. Please stand by for this video as I’m creating it soon.


The taco is a type dish of Mexico, which consists of an omelette that can be corn, wheat, cactus or other types of flour, which contains a varied group of foods inside the tortilla or on the tortilla.
There are numerous types of Tacos in Mexico, some of them are:
– Tacos al Pastor: This taco especially contains pork, chili and pepper.
– Tacos de carnitas: They are tacos of pork cooked with lard.
– Taco de birria: It is a taco that contains goat, sheep or goat meat with spicy sauce
– Tacos de Siberia: These tacos contain shredded chicken accompanied by jalapeños that are Mexican ajís.
The tacos like many other traditional foods of the countries have expanded to other very diverse regions.
