Just as loud, just as slick, the sister venue to Fonda Richmond brings burritos and a hell of a bar to Chapel Street
We’re big fans of Fonda Mexican in Richmond. The fuscia-bright taqueria was one of the first of the new wave Mexican joints to spring up, and their super fresh tacos and chipotle mayo corncobs are still some of the best going. So raise your hands in the air and keep that perpetual Mexican wave going for Fonda Windsor. They’re doing your favourites from the Richmond outlet, including icy mugs of Mexican soaked-rice drink horchata – try it, it tastes just like rice pudding – and not-as-Mexican burritos filled with smoky strips of rare kangaroo fillet, sweet potato and quinoa. But there are a few additions. Go crisp quesadillas filled with juicy shredded pork and queso fresco cheese. And good news, fish taco fans, you can now get those fillets of rock ling deep fried with corn, quinoa and chipotle mayo wrapped in a burrito as big as your arm. The Windsor store is double the size of the Richmond outlet. That means less time queuing and more time burrito-ing. Plus, there’s a bar. Head up the grandiose staircase to Atico, where you can sit on bright floor cushions sipping $10 Palomas like a boho Mexican.
