If our city’s taco-loving chihuahuas could talk, they’d exclaim “¡Yo quiero La Taqueria!”
A can’t-miss Madonna beckons you into the tiny, no frills taco shop. Serving up real Mexican fare, there’s no greasy tater tots or crunchy shells in sight, just authentic soft tacos stuffed with fresh, free-range goods. Request the combo and fill your plate with four different meat or vegan mixtures ($9.50) like the “al pastor,” with pieces of Chilliwack pork marinated in chile, achiote and pineapple, and the “rajas con crema,” a blend of kicky poblano peppers, creamed corn and Mexican cheese topped with sour cream.
In lieu of a siesta, we’ll have seconds.
La Taqueria, 322 W. Hastings St., Vancouver, 604-568-4406, Monday to Saturday 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
