Imagine hearing the sound of Mariachi in the middle of a snowstorm when the wind is sweeping down the mountain. In Whistler, everything is possible. Located on the second floor of the Sundial Hotel in downtown Whistler just minutes from the ski slopes is a cheerful, colorful Mexican oasis.
The Mexican Corner is warm and welcoming, and it features tasteful Mexican décor. The restaurant’s large communal tables encourage conversation and amongst guests. The food is a perfect mix of the popular street food we all crave from time to time and some interesting Aztec and Mayan dishes with spices not typically found on Mexican menus.
Try their Cochinita, which is braised Mayan style pork marinated in Axiote, or the sophisticated 1810 Revolution Salad with mixed greens, poblano peppers, dried cranberries, and pears with a dressing of sherry, Gorgonzola, and walnuts. They also have some creative versions of margaritas made with excellent tequilas.
