4 places with special Cinco de Mayo food and drink deals in Vancouver

May 2 2022, 6:54 pm

Cinco de Mayo – the holiday that commemorates the Mexican military victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla – is often mistaken for Mexico’s day of Independence.

The holiday is actually celebrated more in North America than it is in Mexico, where it is not formally observed by much of the country. Despite this, Cinco de Mayo remains a reason for those outside of Mexico to celebrate and learn about its culture and food.

There are many ways to join in the festivities – which take place on Thursday, May 5 – but a great start is with the food and drink.

Mexican food is more than just tacos and margaritas – though we love those, too – and Cinco de Mayo is a great time to expand your knowledge of the cuisine. From traditional fare to different regional varieties to new school takes, these are some of the best Cinco de Mayo food and drink deals happening in Vancouver this year.
