So in light of all the recent discussions of Mexican food in Toronto, it's ironic that Jennifer Bain has an article in today's Star about visiting Chicago to check out the Mexican food scene there.
This is why so many of us lament the scene here in TO. Just the paragraph on carnitas has me in tears (ok, not really, but you get the point). Does anyone know of a place in Toronto that makes carnitas? When done well, it's one of the most sublime forms of cooked pork. I would drive far for real carnitas in Toronto. My husband and I once made 4 lb. of carnitas and ate it all in a day. Eep.
