Worst Mexican Ever in Toronto - La Mexicana on Bathurst

I recently had a craving for Mexican food and went to La Mexicana on Bathurst. This dirty little place was hot (a/c was barely working and it was 35 degrees outside), felt like an old basement and did not smell great. Now, onto the food. I asked for a bottle of water which was warm - the waitress apologized but did not bring ice until I asked. Who wants warm water on a boling hot Toronto day? The nachos were greasy and the oil they were fried in was definitely 'old oil' The salsa - my favorite Mexican food - was terrible.. like water.. watery, no taste, no flavor. I asked for Pico de Gallo (sp?) and it was disgusting - she charged me for it too and it was so bad! The tomtatoes were in the fridge and a few large chunks of white onion and some parsley - no corriander. Yet another disappointment. On to the mains - I had fajita's - and get a load of this - the chicken was totally plastic-like and covered in lawry's salt - gross. Like rubber. And on the skillet, which was dirty, there were 3 red pepper strips and one green pepper strip, 3 onion strips and that was it! My buddy had some sort of mixed plate which was equally as bad - no flavor. Perhaps this was due to what appeared to be asian chefs? In any event, yet another truly disappointing Toronto dining experience. All bad!
