Fairview Slopes—La Taqueria Pinche Taco Shop is a quick and easy but still very delicious eat-in or takeout meal option in the bustling Cambie meets West Broadway neighbourhood. Always friendly and full of Mexican spirit, La Taqueria is already on its third location (four if you count La Mezcaleria on Commercial Drive) for good reason. As the name suggests, it's all about tacos with a healthy dose of variety while maintaining a no-nonsense appeal.
I've had all the carnivore taco options many times over. My favourites (very top) include:
- De cachete: braised beef cheeks
- De lengua: braised beef tongue
- Al pastor: pork marinated in achiote chili and pineapple
- Pescado: Zarandeado fish with chipotle mayo, radish, and pepitas
I take my tacos with a healthy dose of jalapeños in combination with their four different hot sauces. I also highly recommend enjoying them with a horchata drink—it's like liquid cinnamon and vanilla in a cup—for a full experience.
