Located in the cultural melting pot of the Western end of Robson, surrounded by ramen eateries, is this Mexican taco joint that serves authentic eats. To accompany your tacos, there are salsas made fresh daily adding that authenticity of being in Mexico.

I indulged in the Cod Fish Ceviche ($7) Cod fish marinated in the lime juice tossed with tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeno and topped with fresh avocado and corn chips for dipping to start. Since I was in a taco joint, it was a must that I had a Plate of 4 Tacos ($10 for 4) with the delicious Chicken Mole Taco – White and dark chicken seasoned with onion, salt, pepper and oregano; Carnitas Taco with its fresh flavours, the Baja Fish Taco – Pacific cod in a Mexican beer batter. and the Beef Carne Asada Con Rajas Taco – Grilled beef sirloin with poblano peppers and onions. Presently there is only one dessert on the menu and it’s the popular Churros ($2.50) a straight sugar coated Mexican donut with whipped cream.

You will also find a selection of boozy and not Mexican drinks, a heated patio and friendly servers.
