Guaca & Mole is now open for business in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. Chef-owner Hugo Leon de Gante, a native of Mérida, Yucatán, and former member of chef Marcel Olivier Larrea's brigade at the superb, critically-lauded Mezcla, wants to give the 'burbs a genuine taste of his homeland. "We are cooking authentic Mexican food in a contemporary way. Tasty, traditional local food from different parts of Mexico with our little touches but with respect for the the true flavour and soul of each dish and recipe." The 120-seat restaurant boasts a 40-seat terrasse and doubles as a tequila bar. All in all, good news for West Island diners.
Status: Guaca & Mole, Marché de l'Ouest, 11597 boul. de Salaberry, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, (514) 542-4452.
