Originated from Tofino, British Columbia, Tacofino has expanded to Downtown Vancouver. With locations all around the city (including food trucks!), Tacofino has made its way into the hearts of tourists and locals. The Gastown location of Tacofino offers a Taco and Burrito bar. We suggest pairing the Guac and Dips with the famous Fish Taco and ending the meal off with Churros!

Been to all 5 of these restaurants and they’re all excellent in their own ways!

Miku is the best tasting of the bunch in my humble opinion but expect to pay a hefty sum of money to get yourself full

Tuc have a great chicken and waffles dish that I love but their menu expands much farther than that.

Go out your way to try all these gems!
