Our Homer’s Odyssey into Toronto’s doughnuts continues… -BHH

Mexi-Can Market’s two College Street locations are recent additions to Toronto’s limited number of small grocers specializing in authentic Mexican products. Among the pork rinds, salsas, confections and other “hecho en Mexico” products are the obligatory churros – deep fried, rolled in cinnamon sugar and filled with your choice of chocolate or caramel filling. According to BlogTO the fixings are sourced from Pancho’s Bakery in Kensington Market, but at Mexi-Can they’re conveniently made-to-order while you do your bodega-style grocery shopping. $1.50 each, 4 for $5.
310 & 1232 College Street
More Toronto Doughnuts: Bake Lab, Bonjour Brioche, Caldense Bakery, Nova Era Bakery

Good times will always be had when tacos are involved. At least that’s how it seems to go with me. I spent the night wracking my brain, but I honestly can’t remember one bad day that I’ve had before or after digesting any combination of meats wrapped in a tortilla. (I mean, granted that I only have tacos about once or twice a year.) It could be a psychosomatic thing where I associate taco eating with good fun times or that good fun times can only lead to tacos…or maybe tacos are just fun to eat because you use your hands and it’s hard to take yourself seriously when half of your food is falling out and all over your face – I don’t know, I’m not a brain scientist. This is just a long-winded way to say that I had a good time with Leo yesterday and we ate tacos.
Though not the best food you’ll have in Toronto, Mexitaco is one of those places that will do in a pinch. Jugding from what we’ve seen the past two times we’ve been there, it’s a local hang out to grab a beer with a side of tortilla chips and nachos with friends.
