5 Mexican restaurants you need to try in Victoria

If you’ve been following Tasting Victoria for a while, you may already know that I, Amelia, founder of Tasting Victoria, am from Mexico. When I first arrived in Victoria in 2009 it was hard to find good and authentic Mexican food, but luckily, things have changed. Now there are a variety of options to choose from, whether you are looking for carne asada—which originated in northern Mexico—nixtamal tortillas—mostly made in the center of Mexico—or even Mexican brunch.
