What: Fish Tacos
Where: Barton Snacks (Queen St. West)
Cuisine: Gourmet Snack Foods
Affordability: $5-$10 per item
– I had the 2 fish tacos for $7. They are gourmet but not pretentious as the the other gourmet tacos around the city. It’s simple yet tasty.
– I think they used Tilapia (texture suggests it anyway) and it was perfectly cooked – moist but still together. It was topped with red cabbage with a squeeze of Lemmon juice for that citrusy flavour and surprisingly sweet mandarin orange wedges cradled on two soft tacos. It had a very refreshing summery flavour that could easily be enjoyed with a bottle of cold beer.
– Owned by Katherine Lehto, this one on Queen St. is the second location.
– Would I go back to Barton Snacks? Hell, yes! When I’m done with my “no meat” funk, I’d love to try the hotdogs, the pulled pork and the bacon cookie.
