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.

If you are close by this place stop by for a fish taco. Wow. Bet you can't eat just one. I tried the beef, chicken, and fish tonight. Fish one with the chipotle mayo, fresh cilantro, radish, was the best.

The tacos are very flavorful, what I would imagine genuine Mexican food to be. However, the four tacos doesn't quite fill me up for a meal. For four meat tacos, it cost $9.50 plus tax, a tad pricey for the amount of food you get, and for the kind of food it is supposed to be street food, and it is self service too. I ate there off normal meal hours for a snack, as during lunch and dinner time, I often see a long line of people lining up to get their food.

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.

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!!
