Best Fish Tacos in Toronto: Grand Electric

Large arrow left

Brace the line ups because this is one of the most popular restaurants in Toronto. It's getting the accolades too: En Route named it one of their ten best restaurants in the country.

The premise is simple: tacos, bourbon and loud hip hop and rap music. That said, there's an eclectic Mexican menu from Colin Tooke (ex Black Hoof; Big Star in Chicago) and Front of House Manager/co-owner Ian McGrenaghan (ex-Black Hoof) that changes regularly.

I'm a huge fan of their fish tacos and their key lime vaso. And the best part? The tacos are $3.50 each. It's good quality food that's affordable.

The wait has become a bit more manageable due to a back patio (in the summer months). The boys are opening up an extension upstairs as well.

It's worth the wait!
