Tacofino Commissary

We went to Tacofino Commissary on a weekend to catch their brunch. Tacofino has come a long way since their days of running a food truck in Tofino, BC. I can remember having my first bite of Tacofino Cantina and Tacofino Blue. When I discovered they finally had a restaurant on Hastings, I had to go.

M, Scarface and I came just in time for brunch and were super excited. The restaurant was hard to spot as the outside doesn’t look very unique.

When you look at their ceiling, they have a really cool light installation. It’s a jumble of copper and lights with plants inside some of them. Pretty cool!

Tacofino Commissary

They also play records! It adds a nice touch since it matches the restaurant. Plus, it’s so rare to see people play records these days.

The back of the restaurant looked pretty cool. All the bottles lined up on the shelves looked very unique.

Tortilla Soup ($9) has bits of chicken, ancho chile, avocado, queso fresco, and slow cooked egg to top things off.

Tacofino Commissary

Burrito ($10) is filled with chorizo verde, egg, potato, and cheese. It’s grilled on the outside, topped with salsa and stabbed with a knife.

Inside, you can see all those ingredients. M liked the burrito!

Tacofino Commissary

Gringas ($11) contains pork al pastor, cheddar, kimchi, sunny side egg, and kimchi hollandaise.  You eat this with a knife and fork or else it’ll be awkwardly messy. Scarface said it was really good.

Torta ($9) has grilled skirt steak, pickled vegetables, cilantro, egg, and black garlic mayo. The bun was soft and went well with the ingredients. When you bite into the sandwich, the egg pops, so it coats whole sandwich with the ooey gooey yolk that adds flavours. It can get messy, so make sure you aren’t eating it over your lap. I found the grilled skirt steak could have been a bit more tender since it was a little bit tough to chew through.

Banana Churros ($8) comes with 3 pieces and 2 sauces – dulce de leche and spicy chocolate. We loved this item! The sauces paired perfectly and the churros was so fresh! Highly Recommended!

Overall, the food is good but can be a bit pricey. There is still one item I’ll come back for and it’s their amazing banana churros! SO GOOD.

Word of Wisdom:

  • Free parking around the corner
  • Churros are amazing
  • Most items just under $10 for brunch
