Housemade potato chips!



We found some complimentary deep fried snacks near the register.  The girls chomped these while waiting for our sandwiches.


3 Taquitos come per order.  These had potato and cheese inside.    Rating:  4.5/6

There’s the filling of the taquito.


Pork Huaraches:  pulled pork in a corn tortilla topped with mashed black beans, cabbage, cheese, sour cream and served with red salsa.  $8.75 special.  Rating:   5/6


The bun was neither too hard nor too soft.  It held the filling in pretty well considering. 


Pierna Tortas.  nom nom.


I was quite happy with my sandwich.  It had a kick from the pickled jalapeno and some tang with the pickled onion.  The cabbage provided crunch and the pulled pork had been marinated in Mexican spices.  It was one of the better sandwiches I’ve eaten in a while.  It also was very messy to eat.  I struggled to keep it all together near the end.

In the background, you can see my iced tea.  It was a fountain drink that I ordered.  They also have neat bottles of Mexican sodas and agua fresca. 

I’ll be back for the chips and sandwiches again.  It was really good.


Two little sticks of churros are in one order.  $2.00.

Here’s the damage.  Not too bad.  My sandwich was $8.95 but I felt it was filling.  The girls hoovered up the potato chips and alas, I didn’t get to try any but I suspect they were excellent since they were made on site.

Ordering is pretty straight-forward.  Grab a paper bag.  Write your name on it with the markers provided.  Check off what you want in the boxes on the bag.  Pay at the register and wait for your food.

The restaurant is small with a few tables and a bar stool counter at the front window.

These sandwiches would make for great take-out of picnic food.  I’ll have to keep that in mind.  I’ve never had such a sandwich and imagine I’ll be back for more so I can try the other fillings.

There is metered street parking on Cambie Street and transit is nearby.

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders – Go Giants!

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home.  That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
