Description: Life is simple- Eat, Smile, Repeat! Chef Moises Toyber has been serving fresh and healthy Mexican dishes "always imitated, never duplicated" We believe that the quality of the food we eat is paramount so all of our ingredients are of the highest quality and sourced from local producers and suppliers. What is our wish? For you to experience the flavours of our childhood in Mexico right here in Vancouver, and be amazed at the flavours and quality of this amazing sandwich.

We moved here three years ago and meant to go to Las Tortas. Instead, my husband kept dropping into Subway when he wanted a sandwich to bring home. What a mistake. It should be a crime in this neighbourhood when the owner of Las Tortas obviously knows food, knows flavour and works incredibly hard to bring the best out of his ingredients.

Hand-made; homemade--these are my favourite words when eating a casual meal. Well any meal, actually. Everything is very flavourful. It's the kind of restaurant where you tell yourself you'll be modest in your portions, but you can't and quickly find yourself ordering more.

I'd like to go back for the paella or even paella lessons if I could volunteer enough time!

Came in just before they closed and grabbed three sandwiches to go- they were delicious. Got back to our lodging, had a beer on the deck and enjoyed our sandwiches.

Fast service, very tasty Mexican with nice combination of herbs on salad; great tacos and cheap; had vegetarian quesadillas (4 of them) that came with good portions of salad, rice, guacamole all for 7.95! Deal! Have tried lots of Mex around town but the food at this little Tortas place is the best.

Understated and very very very good food. Fish Tacos and Quesadilla - fish well cooked, cabbage, guacamole - superb. Quesadilla with Oaxacan string cheese, and grilled zucchini/mushrooms (with rice and ensalada, sour cream) was out of this world. Sauces, cheeses, fresh cilantro, all abundant. Good - straightforward, quality Mexican food. Sabroso. Great place, friendly, good vibe. Go for it.

Stopped here for lunch with the kids as we were the in area.

We had:
- the Mexican Club Torta - very good - lots of flavor, well cooked, and quite filling.
- Chips and Salsa - nicely warmed, and kids were happy
- Churro - again, very good
- Hochata - also very good and refreshing

You order at the counter, and the food is served at the table. It's a small space with limited seating, so I would guess most of their business is takeout. Since it was quiet, the staff were good enough to hold off on preparing the churro until we finished the main part of the meal. That was thoughful.

Pay street parking out front, and residential street parking around if you're willing to walk a few blocks.

Overall, a good satsifying meal. Might be a little on the expensive side, but was happy with the taste and quality.
