Specializing in Mexican Street Food, this wonderful eatery in the heart of downtown Vancouver. It’s a casual spot where you can come by and order and get your food to stay or to go and they are open daily for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. They feature house-made margaritas as well as other drinks and beer.

Over several visits I have tried many dishes off of their extensive menu including some beverages. I absolutely love their Tortilla Soup which makes for a light lunch or an appetizer.

A refreshing beverage to have often is the Horchata is refreshing and tasty, made of rice milk with a touch of cinnamon.

I loved the Chicken Mole Taquitos which are doused in a delicious house-made mole as an appetizer.

Both the The Chicken Karaage Taco is a flour tortilla topped with tasty chicken karaage with a Korean sauce twist and a kick of heat; and the Tuna Ceviche was glorious and it came with tortilla chips; are tasty appetizers.

Ahi Tuna tostada was very good with a crispy corn base topped with fresh ahi tuna cubes. Cochinita Bao came in a soft bao bun that is filled with juicy pork. The Alambre rice bowl (rib eye steak) and this is a meal, the bowl is filled with rice, beans, corn topped with the steak and some sauces.

Mango and rose slushy was refreshing and non-alcoholic.

Their tacos are always very good and they have many to choose from, here are 3 that I had recently which included the Alambre Rib-Eye, Cochinita, and the Pastor.

As they now serve breakfast, they also serve dessert and have a coffee menu and I had one the Latte’s to go with my dessert. Flan de queso is made in house and heavenly.

This is a downtown gem worthy of your patronage, it’s a great spot for a quick lunch or one to enjoy an early breakfast or early dinner.
