EATING OUT: LUCHA VERDE

EATING OUT: LUCHA VERDE

Vegetarian Mexican and killer cocktails in the West End.

Sometimes we’re so busy scoping out new and fabulous things all over the city that we totally overlook a gem right our own backyard.

Lucha Verde is that gem.

The vegetarian Mexican taqueria opened last summer in the old Lolita’s spot. After a suitable mourning period for the best restaurant-industry after-work hang-out that was Lolita’s, we bellied up to the newly minimalist bar and took in the blank slate walls and neon signs.

Thanks to some truly wonderful vegetarian and vegan dishes (try the Pasilla BBQ Jackfruit Taco and the three queso Fundito) and what has become our favourite cocktail in the city, the Lounge Act (rye, cassis, rosemary & lemon), Lucha Verde became our second home.

And we completely forgot to tell you about it.

We just hope we won’t have trouble getting a table once all of you discover its charms for yourselves.
