Las Margaritas
Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food. Well let me correct that statement, Tex Mex is one of my favorite types of food. I love them deep fried and crispy joints.

Las Margaritas is usually busy and their menu offers a long list of items. This time I ordered the chimichanga ($14.50), and my friends ordered the flautas ($12.75), and the fajita burrito($14.25). The dishes come with beans and Mexican rice which I found to be a little dry, almost to the texture of couscous. I usually sub the beans for more rice so I cannot comment on the beans but my friend said the beans were good. My chimichanga was tasty, the outer shell could have been a little crispier but overall it was a good meal. The flautas were nice and crunchy and my friend loved his fajita. In the end, are there any deep fried things that are not tasty. I love them all, and that is why I love Tex Mex so much.

I have visited this place a few times over the years but I do remember in the past that the quality and flavours of the food was better. If I were to put Las Margaritas head to head against Topangas, I would have to give Topangas the edge as I do think it is significantly better.

Haven't been here in a while. I'll have to try it one day soon. I recommend trying Salsa & Agave.

Topanga's is great. I also like Andale's (locations on Broadway in Kits and Davie near Burrard). Mexicali's up on Dunbar near 23rd is a weirdly-located place of greatness. Highly recommended for lunch.
