Steve Sanchez, A long-term Toronto resident, has trouble concealing his laughter every time he enters a local delicatessen. A highly advertised and popular item on the menu is the restaurant's famous Crispy Fish Tacos.
"I just can't do it," says the man as he orders his usual lunch of cheese-coated fried meats and potatoes. "I just can't order those tacos."
The restaurant owner-proud of his establishment and proud of the popularity of his fishy dish-had this to say when questioned about the menu item.
"Everybody laughs when they order. I don't see what's funny. I take the fish, fry it until it is crispy, and put it in a taco with lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese."
Spokesperson for the mayor's office, Jona Thompson had this to say, "I am not at all surprised by this outcome. In a highly multi-cultural city like Toronto where a good majority of the people have learned English as a second language, there's bound to be many unrealized double entendres and oblivious use of colloquial terminology."
Sanchez has stated that he won't stop going to the restaurant as he characterizes the food as "very good" and that he and his friends have made a game of scouring the city for other funny signs and advertisements. Sanchez smirks, "I love this city and I love the people in it. And I love shopping for cheese at the Dutch Oven, eating meat at the Annual Sausage Fest, buying groceries at Queen's Milk, and getting drunk off middle eastern wine at the Date'n'Grape."
