La Taqueria is a very tasty place to eat. I really enjoy the abundance of taco selections they have to offer. I am not a vegetarian but one of my favorite tacos is the veggie one. If you are there with a big group order many different kinds and share. Never a Disappointment

Small place with limited seating but worth the wait, authentic tacos with 4-5 salsas to choose from. 12-14 choices in fillings. No Sour Cream and Cheddar Cheese w/ shredded lettuce here just the real deal

Staying at the Delta on West Hastings and driving to Port Moody, I have driven past this place many times. It wasn't until having a desire for Mexican food that the concierge suggested that I walk a few blocks to this interesting storefront that I had passed so many times. The Asada and Carnita were some of the best I've... More

With a great assortment if tacos with many chooses, this restaurant fits the mark for tacos away from my home in Southern California where good Mexican food is everywhere. Don't forget to try a variety of tacos. They have meat, veggie, and Gish options.

Loud and small, a little piece of heaven. It felt like being in a real taqueria down south except for the fact it was ridiculously clean! Service was awesome and friendly, walked me through the menu patiently, prices good And the food! So good. Amazing!. Big flavours, good portions!, getting hungry just thinking about it! Can't wait to go back.

I visited La Taqueria for lunch and immensely enjoyed the vibrant interior and the superb food. The asada quesadilla was perfectly crispy and succulent, and the serving size was generous considering the cheap prices. The tuna tacos were also a hit, and our server was friendly and engaging. The restaurant is small but provides an intimate atmosphere, making La Taqueria... More

My wife and I were craving tacos during our visit to Vancouver and looked up "mexican restaurants." This place was rated high so we paid a visit. They did not disappoint.

What a nice little (and I do mean LITTLE) place! Funky, efficient, authentic, CHEAP, and the best little (and I do mean LITTLE) tacos I've had in years. There is a big selection; order at least two; four (for under $10) if you're hungry. This is great for sampling -- sort of like taco tapas! Did I mention CHEAP? Service... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
