The Taste Buds in partnership with Cornwall Tourism are excited to announce Taco Love, a 10-day fiesta celebrating Cinco de Mayo and Cornwall’s vibrant culinary scene.

From Wednesday, May 3rd to Friday, May 12th, taco enthusiasts are invited to embark on a flavourful journey as seven of Cornwall’s top restaurants showcase their unique and mouth-watering taco creations.

The Taco Love event promises an unforgettable experience that will delight your taste buds and showcase the creativity of Cornwall’s culinary talents. Each participating restaurant has crafted a one-of-a-kind taco creation, ensuring an array of diverse and delectable options for everyone to enjoy. From savory to spicy and everything in between, there’s a taco for every palate.

The Taste Buds, a trio of local food lovers, have joined forces to bring this delicious event to life. They believe that there is no better way to unite the community than through the universal love of food, and Taco Love aims to do just that.

“This event is a unique opportunity to showcase the diverse culinary talents in our city, while also encouraging the community to come together in celebration of Cinco de Mayo,” said Pat Larose of Taste Buds.

To add to the excitement, the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite taco creation throughout the event. By visiting www.yourlocaltastebuds.ca, taco enthusiasts can check out the full lineup of scrumptious offerings and cast their vote for the ultimate Taco Love champion.
