This eatery is centrally located in one of Richmond’s busiest intersections, making it a local hub. Their Pacific Northwest menu offers fresh and locally sourced fare.
For the Vancouver Taco Challenge, American Grille’s chef Jaspere Regaldo has created a dish with a strong Asian influence.
Introducing the Wanna Taco ‘Bout It – this dish is reminiscent of Taiwanese Gua Bao Buns. It consists of braised pork belly, BBQ Hoisin sauce, Sriracha aioli, kimchi, pickled daikon, cucumbers and carrots on a steamed bun.
This dish fits the culinary geography of the area. The Hoisin sauce brings a light sweetness that compliments the pork belly. The Sriracha aioli gives it a nice light spice.
The Wanna Taco ‘Bout It is available anytime, and is $16 for three tacos. You can vote for them here.
