When I lived in Vancouver this was our go-to Mexican restaurant. Away for 4 years I needed a fix and we weren’t disappointed. The menu whilst essentially the same has actually expanded some items. Same quality. Same delicious taste. Well done.

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
