La Catrina: Mexican Tacos in Vancouver

Diana Chan January 19, 2017 Four Beakers, Mexican, Robson Street/West End

La Catrina is a restaurant on Denman Street that serves Mexican Tacos. When they say Voted by 100 Mexicans Vancouver’s Best Mexican Tacos, you know its legit. I came here with a few friends to share some tacos. I’ve heard about them on Instagram and I was curious about their tacos. We were in the area and I knew we had to make a stop here.

We got 4 tacos for $11 among us and shared it all.

Papas Mexicanas has Mexican potatoes with cream and parsley.

Fajitas Tacos has grilled beef, roasted green peppers and onions, with cheese on top.

Cachete taco has a pile of slow cooked beef cheeks.

Carnitas taco has confit pork with red pickled onion on top.

There is different salsa varying in spice level and pickled vegetables you can add to your taco.

  • Avocado
  • Chipotle
  • Arbol
  • Habanero

Of the 4, I really enjoyed the avocado as it was subtle but had a good amount of flavour. Their tacos are really good and have very deep flavours. The meat is moist and is so addictive.

We Rate La Catrina

    Fun fact: Mexican pink is a real colour, and is what they use here 🙂
