The Happy Hooker, Dundas West’s fish-focused taqueria that opened two years ago during the city’s taco-craze, has flopped. The spot’s website is no longer active (the domain expired last month) and a landlord’s distress warrant for outstanding dues—more than $45,000—has been posted on the restaurant’s front door. The phone line has been disconnected, and activity on the Happy Hooker’s Facebook page came to a halt on December 6 with an up-close photo of a shrimp-topped breakfast sandwich. At least there are plenty of other fish tacos in the sea.
