Tulo’s Taqueria: Cocina Mexicana in Muskoka





Located in the heart of Muskoka, this picturesque cottage country Mexican taqueria serving dockside tacos, ceviche and Mexican beach food in an historic boathouse setting overlooking the crystal blue waters of Port Carling's waterfront, Tulo's Taqueria has become the hip new taco hub in Grand Electric's previous haunt on James Bartleman Way. Open noon to 10pm seven days a week, Tulo's doesn't take reservations which explains the long lineups all day, every day. Arriving just before noon on a hot sunny weekend, there was just a family with hungry kids jostling in front of us before we were quickly seated on the outdoor patio in the shade of a big blue Ace Hill Beer umbrella. First up — a cold, thirst quenching, full-flavoured Modelo Pilsner brewed in Mexico City, followed by a selection of Tulo's signature tacos and their famous Tuna Ceviche Tostada Tower with cabbage slaw, crushed tortillas and creamy avocado mayonnaise. With a crew of young upbeat friendly staff and killer menu of potent cocktails, interesting beers, and special Kid's Menu, it's no wonder Tulo's has become a family favourite among Muskoka's refined cottage crowd.
