REVIEW | Seven Lives Tacos -Kensington Market's new up and coming Taco joint!

Seven Lives is a new taco joint that iss tucked away in Kensington Market. Why tucked away? Because it’s not very noticeable especially on a busy weekend when the streets are filled with people. That’s certainly not stopping them from making some pretty tasty tacos though! 

The joint itself is not very big, a few tables for standing and eating and one table to sit. If you have a place nearby, your best bet is probably to get take out! The menu is pretty simple and easy to read on the big chalk board right by where you order. After getting recommendations from a friend who claimed their tacos were the best in Toronto so far, we were pretty excited to give them a try!

Blackened mahi mahi taco –grilled with a dry rub of spices ($5). What a super tasty taco with the perfect amount of dry rub on the mahi mahi. There was a hint of sweetness in the taco that I couldn’t quite place my finger on.

Baja fish – battered deep fried mahi mahi with cream sauce ($5). This taco tasted like your classic fish taco. The batter was very light and the mahi mahi tasted very fresh.

If you're not a huge fan of seafood or fish, don’t worry, you won’t be left out at Seven Lives.
Try the Carnitas –slow cooked pork taco ($4)

Camarones a la diabla – spicy shrimp with cheese ($5).
The taco portions were very generous and quite big compared to some of the other taco places we’ve been to. One taco is the perfect snack size and two tacos will fill you up pretty quickly and make a great meal. A word of caution though, the tacos are pretty messy to eat with all the sauce and fillings. One bonus is that the taco has double tortilla so you won’t have to worry about your taco ripping mid meal.

You can also get Mexican soda there and if you’ve never tried one, I highly recommend it. It’s quite light compared to the soft drinks that we are normally accustomed to.

If you have a taco craving and you are in the Kensington area, definitely stop by and pick up a taco or two! If you are feeling particularly hungry after, walk around and get a churro for dessert! There are so many Mexican restaurants in Kensington market now!
