A coworker introduced to this place to me today for lunch. I work nearby but never knew this was here. I was intrigued by the promise of fish tacos for lunch. When we got there, I was pleasantly surprised by the menu.
Its a casual restaurant that serves good coffee and 'everyday tacos'. Let me tell you that the tacos are not average or 'everyday'. There are about 6 or more types of tacos, about 3 of them are vegetarian. I ordered the fish taco. I love falafels, so I also wanted to try the Falaco taco. The server said two tacos make a good size of lunch. My coworker ordered the fish taco and a salad but I can't remember the name of it. It looked good and had pumkin seeds, craisins, greens, vegs and the dressing was made from tahini. She enjoyed her lunch as did I. The tacos are served on soft flour tortillas (4" size) doubled up, very fresh, and hot. The fish is coated in panko, then covered with guacamole, creamy fresh coleslaw. Very tasty. I wish I could make one right now... the Falaco taco is also good, its a homemade falafel with pickles, lettuce, a tomato paste/sauce - combination of flavours is delicious. Two was the right amount for lunch for me and cost around $9.50 (thats including the tax).
Its kind of like fast food but not really. Although I saw a few people come in for take-out. You place your order and pay at the counter with a friendly and polite server. They will serve it to you where you are sitting. We sat at the picnic long table. There are other smaller tables there as also counter in the window seatting too.
This place is wonderful to have in the Lonsdale, North Vancouver area. Its different from the fast food places around there.
Also if you go here, have a coffee. While having the tacos, I noticed that their coffee smelled good and sounded good. "Ethiopian..." something... so, I ordered one to go. It did not disappoint.
I look forward to going back and trying more tacos. Two thumbs up!
