Hg2 : The Hedonist


This Mexican cantina is one of the funnest places to eat in Toronto, it ticks all the boxes: mariachi music, a smattering of jalapeno-green paint, a big bunch of real tequilas (the good stuff) and the spirit of fiesta. The menu offers a respectful nod to pockets of Mexico, using the quintessential mole in many of its signature dishes. 

You know you’re onto a winner when the guacamole is a heavenly blend of ripe avocado, spice and tang. From then on it’s a profusion of authentic classics such as ceviche and highway food staples like slow-roasted lamb in a banana leaf, all interspersed with punchy Margaritas. The fresh cucumber special (invented on-site) looks as coy as a sweet señorita in a sunset, but is utterly lethal.
