Cinco de Mayo marks the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces led by Napoleon himself in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. While well-known in the U.S., the fifth of May is just gaining popularity in Canada as a celebration of Mexican culture and cuisine. Mucho Burrito is marking the historic occasion nationwide at its locations in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa, Vancouver, and surrounding communities.
