La Mexicana Restaurant Authentic Traditional Mexican Cuisine



My name is Martha Chímal, came to Canada from Mexico City in 1977 full of dreams to be a successful woman. Soon I found my husband Mr. Wong and had three beautiful children, I never stopped dreaming of my success.

Since I could not find authentic Mexican restaurants in Canada with my passion of cooking I decided to open my own; not having enough money raising children and keeping a home.

I started to cook from home and offered to a couple of Tex-Mex restaurants in town having a great acceptance of my cooking; my business grew rapidly.

Soon “La Mexicana Restaurant” was born in September of 1988, introducing authentic Mexican cuisine. Being the pioneers of such we rapidly grew; with time I’ve opened 4 more restaurants in town with a great success. Unfortunately we had to close them down because of construction in metro Toronto, the buildings were sold to build condominiums.

We still have the restaurant at 3337 Bathurst Street, Toronto, ON

This is clearly one of the coolest place in the region. Every time I come there I am truly glad. They manage their very high standard service and the highest level of food they offer. You surely will enjoy this this restaurant. Highly recommended !

La Mexicana

Everything was so delicious, fresh and gourmet tasting! I hadn't come here since 2006 with my Mom who used to take me and my sister here after getting our hair done. Despite the rowdy people I was with when we ate, the service was so kind to us. We came 25 minutes before closing on a Sunday night and the man let us in with a smile and told us not to worry or rush.

La Mexicana

Me and my family enjoyed a nice selection of Mexican dishes. Great taste and variety. Can’t wait to go back!

La Mexicana

This spot is the one I always prefer. I visit many restaurants but to this place I keep coming back again and again. The stuff is very warm and the cooking they cook is so tasty. I never decline to have a good dinner in this place. I recommend this place with pleasure.

Back again at La Mexicana and still not over the wonderful flavours!
Today we got the enchiladas, elote, el burro and churros and we were not disappointed.
The customer service is also always top notch, the server is always accommodating to our needs!
Love this place!

For a refreshing authentic Mexican cuisine you must come here! In the summer there is a nice terrace. Fresh herbs and spices. Their service is warm and friendly. Their home made cuisine with quality produce is what makes this place stand out. The decor is composed of bright colors. Very enjoyable. Vegan friendly also!!

La Mexicana

This place always delivers. They have great dishes for convenient prices, there is no waiting time even when they are busy.

La Mexicana

It was very authentic and tasty.  My fiance is gluten free, and there was a ton of stuff on the menu she could eat, which is a rare treat.
I had the fish tacos and she had chicken tacos.  Comes with all the fixins, and really good pico de gallo, with lots of cilantro just like I like it.  The chicken tacos were great as well.  Highly recommend, can't wait to go back and try more things.

La Mexicana

I went last Saturday morning and ordered a chicken salad and burrito and it was delicious! The vegetables were fresh and the chicken was deliciously seasoned with Mexican beans. I haven't had such great Mexican food since my trip to Acapulco years ago. The restaurant was very clean and I was able to thank the cook Jesus for his hospitality. We are very lucky to have a taste of Mexico in Toronto!

La Mexicana

This place is so Mexican, my Mexican friends spoke Spanish most of the time haha. In all seriousness, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was good, the staff was friendly, and the food came really fast. Definitely coming back..

La Mexicana

Amazing homemade food and atmosphere! My mom and I  and family have been coming here for 10 years or longer! Always consistent and staff welcoming and friendly! Highly recommended ending your meal with the flan! Our server Jesus is always amazing!! Owners super nice! 10 out of 10 forsure!

La Mexicana

I have been visiting this establishment for about 15 yrs or more now. I love this place. It is run by a very friendly and personable family. They will customize things to fit your dietary needs. Their Guacamole is to DIE FOR!!! The food is fresh. You can taste that it isn`t frozen. The only complaint i can think of is i do like Salsa a little chunkier but the flavor is there.

La Mexicana

Nice little place with a Mexican vibe. Actual Mexican cook making delicious food! Portions are filling... had to take a lot to go. Server was great and very patient. They have a patio that's almost bigger than the inside dining area where you can enjoy a cold Dos Equis, margarita or a good tequila. Great place to enjoy authentic Mexican food or some drinks

La Mexicana

The food here is great, I have loved everything I try.
The service is good and decor casual and fun. Portions are generous.
Great place to get together with friends or family.

La Mexicana

The food and service are always incredible.
I can't say enough good things about La Mexicana! Amazing vegan options!
