Wilbur Mexicana in Toronto

Wilbur Mexicana is where a group of friends can meet for drinks and a taco or even going out on your own for time alone. This is a spot where anyone and everyone is welcomed, while also offering cheap downtown eats with big flavour. Wilbur Mexicana is named after the chemist that discovered the Scoville scale of spicy heat, Wilbur Scoville. They offer an upscale but casual atmosphere serving up fast cheap eats that you would not expect in the downtown core.

Once you enter the restaurant there is a sign up on the menu board that states, “Wilbur first timers, grab a menu at the door”, when you read this, you look to your left and see some menus hanging off the side rack. Once you figure out what you want to indulge in, you simply order and pay at the cash where you give you a numbered placeholder that contains a photo of a cartoon pepper. If you are dining in, just grab a seat at a table to you prefer and sit pretty; if take out, sit comfy on a stool right next to the cash.

Nichelle at Who Song and Larry's in Orange CaliforniaWTF! Weekly Taco Feature that is. Who Song & Larry’s in Orange, California, has created a weekly taco menu with the most interesting flavors ever seen in taco form. It’s not your typical taco Tuesday – mostly because it’s only available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. W.T.F… get it?

We headed to their media tasting event to check out what they have in store for restaurant-goers, and were seriously impressed by what we were served!

Perhaps the star of the show was The Big Dripper, inspired by Chef Vegas’ days when he would end a shift at two a.m. and join his fellow chefs at the local food truck meet up. He would get a burger from one of the trucks with a fried egg on it, with a yolk so runny he had to lean over a trash can to eat it, or it would run all down his arms. Here was born The Big Dripper, a corn tortilla topped with a sunny side up egg, Serrano ham, and shaved Parmesan. Definitely, eat this one while leaning over your plate! We loved every single one taco we were served, so we suggest you try them all!

And of course, they made equally delicious signature cocktail pairings for their tacos. Our favorites were the Strawberry Moon, a moonshine mixer that goes down sweet and smooth like lemonade, and the Agua Fresca, a delightful cucumber refresher.

Get these weekly featured tacos every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at Who Song and Larry’s In Orange, CA.
