Mexican - Vancouver Restaurants

 

Taco Mexico Rico (Downtown)

Tacos Mexico Rico (map, visitor reviews, 309 West Pender, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604-688-7426) serves authentic Mexican food in a casual, unpretentious atmosphere.

eastvanstones, a reviewer on DineHere.ca writes (click here to read review):

The chicken enchiladas with verde sauce are exactly like they are in a local place in small town Mexico. Others have had the burritos and salads and are always happy.

The atmoshpere is good too with the cheesy Mexican soaps and gameshows on the TV, and the service is decent – the woman who runs the place is always smiling and happy, even though her English is limited.

Pictured below is the Chicken Enchilada that I ate (for around $9), which I thought was really tasty. I went with a large group of coworkers and we agreed that it was a satisfying Mexican lunch. The place is decorated in a simple style that reminds me of some of the inexpensive but honestly-good restaurants in Mexico I visited which were mainly frequented by locals.

Pictured below, from their Brunch menu, are the Huevos a la Mexicana: three scrambled eggs with tomato, onion and green chile, served with a quesadilla, beans and guacamole (for around $10). Also pictured below is the freshly made salsa and guacamole, which I must say is excellent. Visit Part 1 for more photos.
