Description: We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible. Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally & homemade style) or as a Quesadilla. La Taqueria was born in 2009, through the idea of creating a taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best, a real Mexican tradition.

This is one place to avoid. It specializes in miniature soft tacos - the key word being miniature. We left hungry - and went somewhere else afterwards to get a real lunch.

“Like a cheap and delicious trip to Mexico-lip smackingly tasty”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

The soft tacos at La Taqueria are simple fare, prepared with intriguing and unconventional ingredients, to create taste sensations. I've eaten there several times (at both the Cambie St. and Hastings St locations) and been delighted each time. They have four vegetarian options plus fish and several meat choices. I've tried all of the vegetarian tacos, priced at a bargain 4 for $7, and my favourite are the Picadillo (you won't believe its tofu and the red cause is outstanding in its complexity of flavours) and the Frijole (smoky beans). And of course don't forget the horchata, a cold drink made from almonds. Fast food, friendly service. Mucho gusto!!
