With a name translating to “beach cabin” Playa Cabana certainly delivers the relaxing vibes of the seashore. Enjoy house-made tortillas, tacos, burritos and an extensive selection of tequila.
You must order: Tres Tacos including three tacos on a soft shell with your choice of fish, octopus, chicken or pork.
“The kitchen dispenses food you’ll crave for weeks after, like the grilled octopus in a smoky charred jalapeño salsa, or the al pastor, which brings a soft, fresh tortilla full of juicy adobo-marinated pork and sweet, crunchy pineapple cubes. Traditional Mexican corn—charred cobs rubbed in pequin chili, lime and queso fresco—makes the dead of winter feel like a summer barbecue.” – Toronto Life
