Best tacos in town!
322 W Hastings St, Vancouver, BC, Canada
NileGuide Expert tip:
It's a small space, so grab it to go. If you want to eat in, the flow of people using the limited seating moves quickly.
Authentic Latin and Mexican fare is hard to come by in Vancouver, but La Taqueria does an excellent job of bring the flavors of the South, up to the North. Not only are the flavors similar to what you may find down there, so are the prices, in terms of Vancouver's standards. Choose from items like De Cachete (tender beef cheeks), Carnitas (pork confit), Pollo Con Mole (Chicken in a mole sauce), Pescado (fish), and the popular De Lengua. Yes, De Lengua is beef tongue, and it's tender and delicious! There are also a number of vegetarian options and if you venture that way, make sure to order a Rajas Con Crema (roasted poblano peppers with creamed corn, sour cream and Mexican cheese). There are a few different homemade salsa options and some freshly pickled vegetables to add onto your taco that will add some welcome heat. To complete your meal, grab a Horchata. It's creamy, without the dairy, slightly sweet and has warm hints of cinnamon. It's very refreshing!
