La Matraca

August 10, 2011

Montreal has been going crazy with tacos lately, whether it’s from our only food truck, in the middle of the night or from a random Mexican restaurant. Everyone just loves it!

That’s why I decided to try La Matraca, a lovely little restaurant with a colorful dining room. The concept is simple, seat yourself, take a look at the mini menu and then let the cook know what you want.

I ordered two simple steak tacos with cheese. The result was messy but in a good way! The tortilla was not too heavy or grainy and the topping was delicious.

An array of three salsa were brought to my table to complete the tacos to my taste and they were all very good. To ease the spices, I got a pineapple Chaparritas bottle.

For a taco craving, La Matraca is the perfect place to go to! I couldn’t believe how cheap it was and I really liked how simple my plate was. It clearly showed how confident they are of their tacos instead of hiding them under rice and nachos.
