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. I’m not sure how long this has opened, but it seemed relatively new. They have their original location in Maple Ridge, but…

La Gloria Market Bellingham

Recently we were visiting a local Blaine restaurant, The Hot Spot, when the owner recommended La Gloria Market / Restaurant in Bellingham to us. He mentioned that it was the only Mexican restaurant that he’s been to that is high quality and didn’t give him heartburn. Hey, if another restaurant owner is raving about La…

Antojitos Mexicanos Mayeli

I’ve been hanging out at the Burnaby Heights a lot lately. This time I was in the mood for Mexican food. The term that comes to mind when describing this restaurant is “comida casera” or “homemade”. I found the food tasty, but it lacked the presentation flare.   I also found that the prices were…

Playa Tropical Mexican Restaurant

I know, I know, another post about Mexican food. What can I say, it’s what I’m craving lately. I’ve heard really good things about this small Mexican restaurant in New West. I read Sherman’s review, and aside from him being my favourite food blogger, he has a reputation for telling it like it is. Looking at…

Patron Tacos and Cantina

Having dinner with @billyhur and @jminter is always a pleasure. This time we decided on a place close to their neck of the woods: Patron Tacos and Cantina. The location is ideal: Located on Robson St, this restaurant is steps away from Rogers Arena and BC Place Stadium. It’s pretty central from all the action…

Arturo’s Mexican to Go

Mexican food and summer just got together. So one sunny day I decided to check out Arturo’s Mexican to Go. This food truck is a veteran of the Vancouver street food scene. Arturo’s has been located on West Cordova, a block away from Waterfront Skytrain since 2010. Arturo’s recipe for success is a simple one:…

Off the Wagon Travelling Tacos

You can find Off the Wagon Travelling Tacos at the Main Street Night Market on Wednesdays, but they also have a weekday spot on the corner of Dunsmuir and Burrard. It’s a very convenient spot, right outside Burrard Skytrain Station. Their mantra is “local, ethical, sustainable and healthy….oh, and YUMMY!” Their ingredients include locally farmed beef and…
