For many, the mighty margarita goes hand-in-hand with sunny, tropical climes.
Ottawa, though, boasts some truly marvellous margs – available year-round – which you can pair with delicious plates that will truly warm the soul.
On this #WorldMargaritaDay, our picks for Ottawa’s best are:
- Taqueria La Bonita : this place may not look like much from outside (it’s in a strip mall, after all), but step into this art-filled and vibrant space, and you are transported! The margs are ice cold, and the Mexican street food offerings are muy deliciosa!
- Eldorado Taco : this taste of Mexico is a new addition in the heart of Little Italy. Its tacos and tequila are sublime and spicy additions to Preston Street, one of Ottawa’s most dependable destinations for great eats.
- Blue Cactus Bar and Grill : Worth a visit for the margaritas alone. And when they ask if you want to cactus size yours, the only acceptable answer is ‘yes.’
While margaritas are – clearly – an all-season drink, another *great* spot for Ottawa margs is only open in the summer months. (But it’s well worth the visit!)
- Tavern on the Falls has one of the best patios and best views in the city. It’s also great great food and bev. Win-win-win.
Mas of these margaritas, por favor! Salud!
