Inspired by memories of relaxing in the sun or indulging in bold flavors of Mexico on a beach in Baja, Tres Carnales Taqueria was born from three compadres’ love of the taco. Located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, Tres Carnales puts a local spin on Mexican street food using regional ingredients and operating with a dedication to farm-to-table and sustainability movements. Their combination of passions for the flavor, sights and sounds of authentic Mexican cuisine and regional ingredients has proved so popular that another location in downtown Edmonton is soon to open.
