Blogging about restaurants can get very boring when you are eating meals that you would just call average. Mediocre food is easy to find.

I took a trip to La Taqueria after hearing many good things. This place blew me away! La Taqueria took over the old Nuba location, it is small with limited bar seating but it doesn't feel dirty or grimy.

La Taqueria states on their chalkboard that they use organic ingredients and make an attempt to source local products where possible. Soft tacos were $2.50 for the meat versions and $2.00 for the vegetarian/vegan options. I had three different types:

De Cachete - braised Chilliwak Pork Cheeks
Pescado - grilled seasonal fish with pico de gallo - today it was Albacore Tuna
Arrachera - house marinated Canadian AAA skirt beef

All tacos were served with cilantro, lime and onion. There were also pickled onions, jalapenos and three extraordinary homemade salsas to complement your tacos:

Mild - avocado and tomato
Medium - chipotle (ridonkers tasty!!!)
Hot - I think more traditional...can't do super spicy so we didn't try it out

The tacos were amazing. I felt that the mixture of sauces, meat and other ingredients was very well thought out . The beef and the pork cheek tacos blew my mind away.

I'm in love because this place is downtown, and hands down serves the best tacos in the city. As my friend stated, this place blows Dona Cata out of the water.

Go give this place a try. Highly recommended if you love Mexican tacos.

P.S. They also have daily specials like chorizo, lamb, etc...my friend has tried many and says whatever it is, order it. Guaranteed amazing.

ohhhh those look great!!!! I take your word for it just by your pictures.

I like how the tortilla shells are homemade. Have you tried the fish tacos at Go Fish? Apparantly those are great. I was on a search for the best fish tacos. But I missed Go Fish. Will try soon I hope.

Until now, they sell the best tacos in vancouver bc, I hope they keep quality. Prices good, not cheap but you get for what you pay.
Love the carnitas and steak.

In total agreement with you! I finally went to La Taqueria today and it was completely delicious. Frankly, I don't even remember what I ordered, beyond the four meat tacos and the Mandarin Mexican soda. I just got the cashier to choose for me. Next time, I'll try the four vegetarian tacos. Great value, too, for those tacos are deceptively filling (wow!) and made with such fresh ingredients. I was extremely impressed at the number of local ingredients that they use and that the meat they use is free-range, grass-fed, antibiotic-free. I'll pay anything for that because it is still so hard to find in this city. I agree with you re: the chipotle salsa/sauce, but the mole was also hella delish. I recommend this to everyone.
P.S: Another Vancouver blog, while they very favourably reviewed LT, they made what I see as a very ignorant and insulting comment about paying good money for what is just a tortilla, meat, and vegetables. The tacos at LT are completely affordable and inexpensive, and the quality of the ingredients and authenticity of the dish (Taco Bell tacos are not Mexican tacos)are a rare find. All the Chinese restaurants that they tend to review definitely can't say that their food is deliberately locally and ethically sourced.

My name is not "the" as my comment on the awesomeness of LT says. Stupid mouse. It's as you see above.
