La Carnita Toronto

La Carnita set to open in the Beaches

La Carnita is expanding into the east end with a second taco shop in The Beaches. The new location at 1953 Queen Street East will be similar in size to the original and offer the same signature Mexican street foods with a few minor tweaks.

Alongside tacos, tostadas, and queso-covered corn, expect the new menu to ramp up its dessert offerings. Owner Andrew Richmond plans to accessorize the new outpost with a frozen treat counter that's tentatively titled, Sweet Jesus. The take-away counter is set to offer a line up of ice cream by the pint and fruity paleta ice pops to-go.

Look for the new location to open its doors in June.
