Sciué finds its inspiration in the streets of Italy, where bar-restaurants and cafés dot every street corner, welcoming visitors throughout the day, offering a. variety of items to satisfy most appetites and cravings.

1011 Granville St, Vancouver
Cuisine: Mexican Street Food
La Loteria, the name of la Loteria comes from the famous Mexican “bingo” game. The game is composed of “boards” with different characters instead of numbers in the regular bingo. When a person wins in the game, he/she would yell “Loteria!”. La Loteria Mexican Street Food is looking to commemorate that traditional game and use it as a representative of the Mexican culture and identification.
We are featuring our unique and authentic cuisine options: tamales, tostadas and tortas. La Loteria serves the typical food that we can find in Monterrey city streets here, on the busy streets of Vancouver. We are bringing those unique flavours that can transport you to the North of Mexico and delight your taste buds, satisfy your belly, but most importantly, your heart.
