My family recently bought take out from https://casa-mexico.ca/ Casa Mexico. I had the opportunity to visit in person with a friend and we loved it!
From the whimsical (slightly cliché, but fun!) decor, including sombreros and “Nacho Libre” style masks on the wall, it is not the most elegant restaurant, but it doesn’t need to be.
I knew that I would enjoy the meal when I found horchatas by the pitcher on the beverage menu. (Perfect accompaniment to any traditional spicy meal, horchata is a spiced milk beverage served on ice. I’ll admit a curiosity as to what horchata would taste like as a hot drink, frothed? Mmm…).
There was almost too much selection for the vegetarian palette, so I went traditional and had the vegetarian enchiladas with both green and red sauce (divorciada). A perfect balance between spice and flavour.
My least favourite part of the meal was dessert. The dulce de leche was tasty, but a little dry.
Overall, the service was great, the food wonderful and the decor a lot of fun. It isn’t the cheapest, but it is reasonably priced.
Next time, I hope to go on a Friday (mariachi band!)
