La Carnita has major expansion plans in the new year

After a La Carnita location in the Beaches was widely reported but never realized, owner Andrew Richmond is understandably a little gun shy about going public with news of any expansion. Lucky for taco enthusiasts, however, the AGCO website has now made public news that La Carnita is opening at 106 John Street, part of significant plans the restaurant has for the new year.

While details are still scarce (and ever changing), I've heard that the Sweet Jesus soft serve concept might find a permanent home at this new site, too -- meaning tacos and ice cream cones topped with cotton candy could find themselves together at last in 2015.

The John St. outpost will actually be the third location of the popular taco joint by the time it opens. Another restaurant is already under construction on Queen Street East where Rasputin Vodka Bar used to be. Toronto already boasts multiple locations of Playa Cabana, and it would appear our appetite for tacos has yet to wane.
