STREET FOOD. STREET ART. STREET SOUNDS.

Locally designed with the help of some of Toronto’s best street style artists, La Carnita is the spot to enjoy delicious tacos, a handful of churros, run through a mixtape, and wash it all down with a fresh cocktail or beer. At the heart of what we do is always to serve up a dynamic menu, and connect with the community through our love of art & music.

 
 
 

Street Food

La Carnita slings everything from street corn, ceviche, and churros to ribs, empanadas, and paletas. Oh, and tacos. Lots, and lots of tacos. It’s all inspired by Mexican street cuisine and it’s all made in house.

Street Art

In the pop-up days, it was illegal for La Carnita to sell food. So, we sold prints of our logo and gave tacos away for free. Today, the ‘Meathead’ is still reimagined by local and international artists but now the prints come free and the tacos cost money.

Street Sound

Have you ever eaten in silence? It’s borderline psychotic. That’s why La Carnita keeps a collection of soundtracks at the ready. Ranging from golden era hip hop to future rap classics, mixtapes are crafted by local Djs to keep you bobbing your head, not ripping your hair out.

 

IT'S NO MYSTERY THAT LA CARNITA CAME FROM MY LOVE FOR THE FOOD, ART, AND SOUNDS WE FIND IN OUR STREETS. BUT AS FOR WHERE LA CARNITA IS GOING...THE POSSIBILITIES ARE PRETTY MUCH ENDLESS.
