For another year running, Native Tongues has snagged the Best Mexican Restaurant in Calgary. Since opening its doors in 2015, this traditional street and market food hotspot has been a staple for Calgarians far and wide. If you’re looking for authentic, yet unique, Mexican dishes in a trendy neighbourhood in an even trendier restaurant, look no further. Native Tongues has won countless awards over years for their exquisite presentation and unparalleled creations.

Explore the distinct flavours and unique combinations on the Native Tongues menu. Start the experience off with a sassy cocktail like their Big Peach in the Big City, with gin, Los Siete Misterios Doba-yej, yellow chartreuse, green chartreuse, lemon and peach, or perhaps you go for The Peppermint Winds with Los Siete Misterios Doba-yej mezcal, Cynar, mint, thyme, lemon, Bittermens celery shrub and a cherry tomato. But don’t get too carried away, because there are plenty of food items to sample. Start with the chips and guacamole followed by a crispy tostado and perhaps a few of their single serve tacos for the ultimate Native Tongues experience. We’re drooling just thinking about it.
