La Taqueria

La Taqueria is one of our favourite mexican restaurants in Vancouver. We found this one out a couple years ago when my co-worker took me there.

Colorful taco shop, just like in Mexico
The place is quite small and occasionally a little bit crowded during weekday lunch hour as Tacos are great fit for lunch I suppose.

La Taqueria serves authentic Mexican street tacos. You won't find the other typical Mexican dishes there.

My order
We typically order 4 tacos because they give discount if you do that. The pricing scheme is simple:

1 meat taco @ $2.50, 4 for $9.50
1 veggie taco @ $2.00, 4 for $7.00 

Suggestion: if there are two of you, you can order 4 meat and 4 veggie and split them to get the better deal.

Wife order
My order was: Al Pastor, Carnitas, Asada, and Tinga de Pollo.
Wife order was: Pescado, Tinga de Hongos, Asada, and special (seasonal, was fish at that time). 

Took us about 20-30 minutes from start to end and back to our car. Lightning quick. 

While the food was awesome, we can't say the same about the surrounding neighbours.

Uh ... wha?
As soon as we stepped out of our car, we can smell them. Wasn't too happy with that.

Luckily, La Taqueria opened their second taco shop not too long ago in Cambie. The only reason we went to the old place was because it was on our way. We'll definitely go to the other place next time.
