“Good overview of latin american food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This place was great, from tacos, to empanadas, arepas. It was so nice to get outside of the "chain" restaurants of Vancouver and find this little gem of a neighborhood place! That is my biggest issue wtih Vancouver restaurants, is finding the REALLY good "mom and pop" type places. Went on a Thursday night, where they have a pint of beer with a shot of tequila for $8. Shot is interesting as it comes with a spicy lime chaser. Tacos were good, my favorites were the carne asada, but the Al Pastor and Pollo (spicy buttermilk fried chicken, can't go wrong) were also good. Empanadas were the best i've had in Vancouver so far. Looking forward to going back soon.

“Fun relaxing and awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Street style food with good gluten free selection. Drinks were fun and affordable. Would be a perfect place to take visiting friends that loved food, like to have fun and aren't stuck up

“Cool take on Mexican/Latin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Not just tacos, they have Arepas as well which happen to be gluten free as well as delicious.

The other thing that stands out is they have great cocktails, and I can't recommend high enough the tequila shot with the cilantro/pineapple chaser.

Located on a cool part of Main Street close to shopping and other cool little restaurants. A good area to try a few places.

“Delicious Latin brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Went here for brunch. One of those "neighbourhood" type restaurants that not many people know about and is more relaxed. Food is delicious if you like Latin American food (try the cornbread jalapeno with corn bread) and staff is great. The place is small (only 3 booths and the rest small tables) but service is fast. I would go here again if in the mood for Latin American fare!

PS: Was once called Latitude.
