UFC 145's Miguel Torres: It's Tough To Find Tacos In Montreal

UFC Bantamweight contender and former WEC champ Miguel Torres is training in Montreal with Firas Zahabi (George St. Pierre's head coach). He's blogging at MMA Fighting as he prepares for his UFC 145 bout with Michael McDonald. Here's the part I found the most amusing:

I love Montreal. It's an awesome place. The only thing that gets me down from time to time is the cold. That's one thing I could do without while staying here. Still, I've traveled to a lot of countries during my 14-year mixed martial arts career, and I can safely say Montreal boasts some of the best women and the best food. The only thing it seems to lack is Mexican food - which is a great benefit to my diet, truth be told - and a bit more heat. If they could sort those two things out, it would be as close to a perfect city as you can get.
...
The reason for ending my camp in Montreal is simple really - it's far easier to make weight out here. I don't have the comfort of home foods in Montreal. It's tough to find tacos out here. The good thing about Florida, on the other hand, is that there is a heavy focus on wrestling, which used to be one of my main weaknesses a couple of years ago. Van Arsdale has me working on wrestling every day in Florida, and that kind of repetition and attention to detail has been a Godsend for me.
