I love tacos.

(Who doesn't?)

S took me to a new place on King West that she absolutely loves, Wilbur Mexicana.

It was a Saturday night and it was packed. Loud music played as you entered the restaurant.

You pick up a menu and line up to order.

Apparently their Queso Fundido is amaaazing, however they were out of it for the day. I guess that goes to show exactly how good it is!




I snagged a table as S went to put in our order. They gave us a number/sign/football guy so they would later know where to bring our food.



While we waited, I hit up the salsa bar to choose my condiments. They also had rows and rows and rows of hot sauce! 

I went with the Habanero and Asada salsas.




After a short wait, a server came and brought us our food. We ordered the Baja Fish, Bulgogi, and Chicken Tinga tacos.


The Baja Fish and Bulgogi tacos came in a flour tortilla, and the Chicken Tinga came in a crispy corn tortilla. All of them came with a side of tortilla chips.

Baja Fish (top) - beer battered mahi-mahi, cabbage, pico de gallo, chipotle crema
Bulgogi (bottom) - cabbage, sriracha crema, pear, sesame seeds

Chicken Tinga - guacamole, cotija

The ingredients in the tacos worked very well together. There was also a great tortilla to filling ratio-- something that is definitely important when it comes to tacos. Overall these were great and pretty filling for their size.

Their chips were also perfect in thickness and crisp. I can only imagine how good they would've been with the queso...

Wilbur is a great addition to the King West strip. The fare is affordable and the food is delicious. The next time you're in the area and don't feel like going to one of the swankier restaurants King West is notorious for, be sure to check this place out instead!
