Tacofino Tofino: The Original Cantina on the West Coast

tacofino-tofino-1

Tacofino has made waves in Vancouver with amazing fresh tacos and burritos. I’ve been to all of the Tacofino locations in Vancouver, but since I was in Tofino, I had to see where it all started.

West Coast tacos and burritos were screaming for us. The truck wasn’t open yet, but it already had a line up.

On the menu, you have burritos, tacos, gringas, drinks and soups.

The line up is pretty constant, but don’t be turned off by it, the food is worth it.

Choco-Banana Licuados is their milkshake and it has a good balance of the banana and chocolate. It’s a bit filling too, so M and I shared it so we could eat more food.

Tuna-Ta Taco has seared albacore tuna with wasabi-mayo, seaweed salad, and pickled ginger. Really delicious, but this will set you back $6.50 per taco. Expensive, but very delicious.

Fish Taco uses tempura ling cod with cabbage and fresh salsa on top.

Look at that crisp fish taco inside. Once you bite inside, you get the crunchiness of the cod and all that delicious salsa.

They also have different hot sauce on the table if you need an extra kick in your taco, put a few dashes in there.

The burritos are all wrapped up, so its easy to get it to go. We grabbed a few and took it back to our hotel.

Crispy Chicken Burrito reminded me of chicken karaage. It also has guac in it. I couldn’t say no to guacamole.

Fish burrito has that big chunk of cod inside. Delicious as well. One of the less heavier choices.

Pork Burrito was good as well. The pulled pork and those beans make it a very filling item to get.

Overall, the food is good and the burrito gets the best bang for your buck since you need at least 2 tacos to be full. You can still get the same good stuff in Vancouver, but if you haven’t had Tacofino before, give it a try. You really can’t go wrong with any items on the menu.
