Tiny Taco Place in Montreal West

Although it's a tiny, tiny hole-in-the wall, I think "Tacos" deserves its own thread.

The sign outside says simply "Tacos" in huge letters - the official name is Les Aliments Carne. (Apparently their original intent was to be a "meat counter" but plans changed.)

They have a small, changing menu of mostly tacos, with one burrito on the menu. There is mostly steak, pork, and chorizo as fillings. Today they had a lamb taco. Sometimes they have chicken milanese tacos (breaded chicken) but not today. Tacos are $3 each or $8 for 3 of one kind. The veggie burrito was $7. Taxes included in prices.

They made me a bean burrito, which had rice in it and fresh coriander. While not the holy grail of TexMex or California-style burritos, it was delicious, with a tasty, spicy salsa throughout. My husband loved his tacos, saying that while he doesn't have much experience in such matters, they were definitely the best tacos he ever had.

They also make homemade churros with dulce de leche but had run out when we got there. They were very apologetic and promised fresh ones tomorrow morning. There isn't much else on the menu besides drinks, including Jarritos sodas.

There about four seats at skinny counters on either side of the place if you really wanted to eat there, with salsa, lime, and chiles in little ramekins.

As someone who's had some great TexMex food in the last few years I intentionally kept my expectations very low, and I was really pleasantly surprised by this place.
