Easy Beef Enchiladas #Recipe

Growing up, my mother would often makes tacos at home and she used to bring me to a Mexican Restaurant in Jakarta called Amigos, which I loved! My mother is pretty much obsessed with Mexican food (and SO AM I!) because she went to school in El Paso which was only a 10-minute drive to…

Discover Los Angeles: Affordable Fun Things To Do

Los Angeles can be quite an expensive city to vacation in, despite the low cost airfare from Vancouver to LA (my flight cost me only $275 in October!)

Tacomio #TacoChallengeYVR

Fresh ingredients and traditional Mexican cooking techniques make this restaurant a must-try place to eat. Tacomio literally means “my taco” in Spanish, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this small taqueria does becomes one of Vancouver’s favourite…

The Mexican Gourmet (Port Coquitlam)

Living in the suburbs, we try to get out and support some of the local restaurants in the area, yet hope for something new and exciting. We happen to come across The Mexican Gourmet one weekend.
