After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disc with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of inventive Mexican fare at Los Cabos Cantina & Grill in Whitby.
In a relaxed, surf-seasoned atmosphere, Los Cabos Cantina & Grill cooks up an inventive Mexican menu to accompany a diverse selection of starters, soups, and sandwiches. Los Cabos' savoury sopas, including the vegetarian Aztec black bean soup ($4.99 for a bowl), seduce slurpers, and lettuce-heads may skewer dressing-laden leaves in any of Cabos' fresh salads ($5.99–$10.99). Feast on Mexican favourites, such as Big D's burrito platter ($10.99), drenched in fire-roasted ranchero, tomatillo salsa verde, or spicy enchilada sauce, or bite into the Big Sur fish tacos ($9.99), boasting beer-battered mahi mahi and a regiment of refried beans. Los Cabos' margarita menu appropriately accompanies a stomach full of sandwiches, a dessert of deep-fried ice cream, or a first date with one’s parole officer. A separate menu is available for children and thumb-sucking adults.

Los Cabos Cantina & Grill
She may be from Whitby, but Shelagh Pirkl is no stranger to hot weather and hotter flavours. She spent years eating her way across California, enjoying the fresh, flavourful cuisine of Mexican-American regions. Along the way, she and her husband Darren—a California native—decided to bring their findings north. So they opened Los Cabos Cantina & Grill, which is named after the Baja peninsula to perfectly capture the eatery’s Mexican-Californian cuisine.
Inside, diners feast on everything from corn-dusted red-chili calamari and monterrey club sandwiches to traditional enchiladas blanketed in melted cheese and wrapped in papier-mâché. Chefs can customize meals to the customer’s preferred spiciness level, and they can also create gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan options. Live music, an outdoor patio, and freshly muddled margaritas lure guests into the eatery’s laid-back Californian atmosphere, though tempers occasionally rise during Leafs games and Monday night football.
