My husband and I came across this amazing little place during a quick 3 day stay in Vancouver last November. We were wandering around the street trying to decide where to eat when this place caught our eye. It was very small, no seating aside...More

Love their tacos, very tasty. I get take out from this place and it's been good! Go for it. They are very quick, not much a wait time.

Simple place, a few seats inside but just grab a taco and wander down to English Bay and watch the sunset!

Great casual tacos. We each had the taco combo that gave us four different tacos. Loved sitting at the counter enjoying people watching and the favours, especially the chocolate mole, that seemed as good as any we had in PVR.

These are like gourmet tacos, with interesting tasty fillings. Four veggie tacos are $10, with meat are slightly more than that, or they're $3 each (not sure if the meat ones are a bit more or not). So far, on Wednesdays, the potato tacos have...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
