Tuesdays are for Tacos at The Happy Hooker

Now don’t get the restaurant’s name confused with Xaviera Hollander (who wrote The Happy Hooker book). The Happy Hooker is located on Dundas St just east of Trinity Bellwoods. It’s small, cozy and easy to talk as the music and ambiance is not loud.

Tuesdays at The Happy Hooker are known as Taco Choose-days! Any 3 tacos and a beer for $14.00 or any 3 tacos and a pop for $10.00

My favourite were the shrimp tacos, surprising to me since I thought the cod would taste the best. I liked that the shrimp had a bit of a kick in the sauce and it meshed well, topped with mango salsa. The cod was beer battered and lightly deep fried. The cali baja was corn battered with guacamole topping. I found the cod and cali baja taco didn’t have as much flavour as the shrimp tacos.

The fries reminded me of a ‘taco supreme’, the fries were hand cut and crispy, topped with spices, sour cream, vegetables, siracha and guacamole.

They were very good at accommodating people with a gluten allergy. The service was great and prompt, our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. She even told us about a new app called Tab to pay for our meal which got us $5.00 coupon.

This place is a great for cheap and good grub!
