I was in Mexico two year ago today. Basking in the warm Mexican sun on a beach chair I squatted before the breakfast buffet opened up. I spent most of my days sipping watered down virgin piña coladas as I tanned my pasty winter coddled body. I decided that after a few days of hotel food, I would venture out in search of authentic local cuisine. So I got my hair braided by beach vendors in an attempt to blend in with the locals as I looked for street tacos.
It’s always cliché to say that you miss the food that highlighted your vacation. But I haven’t had tacos here like I did at the road-side taqueria I visited three times in two days. I’ve spent the last two years experimenting with recipes and trying Mexican restaurants in Montreal that would fill that void to no avail. Until now. I recently hit up the newest Mexican hot spot in Dollar-des-Ormeaux, Tacos Don Rigo.
