There may actually be more Mexican restaurants in Vancouver than there are tiny dogs in Yaletown.

Just kidding – that would be ridiculous. But because there are so many options for Latin American eats, we made a short list that will come in handy when you’re craving one of our favourite Mexican creations – churros tequila¬†tacos.

While there are a ton of awesome spots to head when you’re looking for Latin eats (namely tacos ) we think these 7 just have that special something.

Here are the 7 best places to get tacos in Vancouver.

Molli Café

If you lived in Mexico and say these tacos are the best – then we believe you. A hidden gem that keeps getting props for having the most “legit” tacos in town, Molli Caf√© serves up authentic Mexican tacos on Burrard. If you haven’t heard about this Mexican cafeteria-style spot, don’t waste any time, just go try it yourself.

What can we say other than this is a classic no-brainer when it comes to grabbing tacos. This family of restaurants now has four eateries and two trucks – giving you six times the chances of snagging one of their fresh-to-death creations. Note: taco menus may vary depending on the location – meaning a taco crawl is inevitably in order.

Chancho Tortilleria

A post shared by Ernie Fetting (@erniefetting) on

This over-the-counter spot from the team that brought you Pacific North West-inspired Fayuca (another fave for Latin cuisine) has a menu completely focused on artisanal tortillas made fresh daily in the Lenin tortilla machine. The team here¬†worked to create a tortilla with the right shape, ones that wouldn‚Äôt break when you fill them with delicious fillings and sauces. Tacos that don’t break = top of our list. It’s just science, people.

La Taqueria

Who could resist the colourful eateries that are the La Taqueria family of restaurants. La Taq always brings their A-game when it comes to serving up awesome tacos, and when you pair it with one of their margs (or the housemade horchata) you’ll be in foodie heaven.

At 4 for $10 these tacos are hard to resist. With housemade tortillas and authentic Mexican fillings and sauces, Sombreros has to be at the top of your must-try list when it comes to delicious taco eats – not to mention you can grab some Qeuso-flavoured Ruffles imported from down south to wash ’em down.

Sal Y Limón

The Pawn Shop

Despite what you may think, this spot doesn’t sacrifice quality for price. If you want straight up good and filling tacos for a steal, The Pawn Shop is your spot.
