Montreal certainly isn’t as revered for its taco scene as say Los Angeles or Austin, but that doesn’t mean you can’t easily find decent — even delicious — ones peppered across the island. Neighbourhoods like La Petite-Patrie and the Plateau are great places to start, thanks to their clusters of more traditional spots, but even Chinatown and the West Island are home to some reliable options. As for the Sud-Ouest, the pandemic saw the fall of its premier taco destination, Grumman 78, but the area is still well-served by Tacos Frida, arguably serving up some of the city’s best, among others.
From the classic carnitas sprinkled with chopped onions and cilantro found at old favourites to the vegan Californian take of a newcomer, here are 15 solid choices to get anyone with a hankering for tacos.
