Location: 2521 Main St. Vancouver, BC
We came here after a couple of beers from Brassneck. I found out about this location via a fellow foodie, Maggi Mei http://vieamaggi.com. Her pics of the tacos sent me on a frenzy of wanting to give this place a try ASAP.
What did we order:
2 Atun - Seared albacore tuna with wasabi mayo, chili ponzu, cabbage & pico de gallo on a 6" hand made flour tortilla.
1 Baja - Tempura beer battered seasonal fish with cabbage, cilantro, salsa mexicana and chipotle mayo in a 6" hand made flour tortilla.
1 Cabo - Tempura beer battered prawns fish with cabbage, cilantro, salsa mexicana and chipotle mayo in a 6" hand made flour tortilla.
On tap margarita and 33 acres of Darkness
La Taqueria has taken the Portland approach of order at the counter and sit, wait for your food. It's a casual place so don't expect service like Tacofino.
Let's start off with the drinks, the margarita was delicious, highly recommend it. 33 acres of Darkness is a dark beer with coffee and chocolate tones, extremely delicious.
Now to the tacos, Atun, it's not tacofino that's for sure. They cook it almost 80% done but the sauce and cabbage combined is still refreshing. The Baja had a lot of beer batter and it really overpowered the taco. It was ok, but I realized I don't like beer battered proteins. The Cabo was pretty similar to the Baja, I can't elaborate on it anymore.
They also have churos at this location but I didn't save room for dessert.
Overall, the experience was ok, knowing that for less, I can get an amazing experience elsewhere, I probably won't be back again.
