El Charrito Chicken Burrito

This hot mess of deliciousness is loaded with marinated pulled chicken, vegetables, rice, beans and pico de gallo. Wearing a white shirt while eating this is not recommended. (808 Edmonton Tr. N.E., 403-478-2924)

Jalapeo’s Barbacoa de Lengua Tostadas

Try some tender barbecued beef tongue (trust me, it’s tasty) on top of three crispy tostados with refried beans, lettuce, onions and cheese. If tongue really isn’t your thing, you can opt for choices like chorizo, made in-house. (821 4 St. S.W., 587-353-1484)

Los Chilitos Breakfast Enchiladas

If you’re hungry for a big brunch, try out this offering from this popular eatery on 17th Avenue.

Spend one of your last Friday nights of summer sipping on this refreshing cocktail, a shaken combination of gin, cucumber and lemon, finished with licor (a citrus Spanish liquer) and bubbly ccava. (528 17 Ave. S.W., 403-457-1432, oxandangela.com, @oxandangela)

Sabroso Ceviche de Mariscos

Ceviche is the epitome of fresh, lively flavours and Sabroso’s with prawns, scallops, citrus and plantain chips is an excellent example of this dish that has so many variations. (1504 16 Ave SW, 587-350-2679, sabrosos.ca, @sabrosoyyc)

Xocolat Melon Riviera

While having dinner at this refined Mexican eatery, try sipping on this summery drink made with Belvedere vodka, sweet watermelon, cilantro, sugar cane syrup and lime.
