With heavy rainfall these past few weeks, you may be in search of a tropical reprieve. But if a plane ticket may be out of the cards, take a flavour-escape with some of Vancouver’s top Mexican cheap eats.

Situated in the Downtown core, the Mexican Antojitos Cantina is popular for their traditional Mexican dishes. Our favourite is the Torta Ahogada Sub stuffed with braised pork and topped off with salsa and red pickled onions for $9.50.
