My friend, Stang, introduced me to Seven Lives located in Kensington Market. A small place with just a table that can sit up to 6 people (tightly) and maybe another 2 high-seats available near the window but primarily, it’s a quick buy-and-take-out place. They usually have quite a line-up around lunch time so go there early or go a little later.
They serve around 7-9 types of tacos a day and averaging at $5 each. I usually get 2 tacos per visit but for those who love tacos and have a big appetite, you may want to consider 3 or 4. 🙂
I’ve tried almost every flavour on the menu and I have to say their fish ones are the best.
My favourite and most recommended one of all is the GOBERNATOR ($5) -Smoked Marlin, Shrimp and Cheese. (top)
The bottom is the Blackened Mahi Mahi – grilled with dry rub of spice.
All tacos are wrapped with double soft shells.
Some other ones that I’ve tried in the past is the Baja Fish – battered and deep fried mahi mahi with cream sauce.
PULPO EN MOLE VERDE ($5) – Octopus with Pumpkin Seed mole
CAMARONES A LA DIABLA ($5) – Spicy Shrimp with Cheese
I especially loveee their fish tacos + their sauce (+ house-made hot sauce). It just makes the entire combination of that much better! AGain, Gobernator is my favourite!
