The latest Baja-inspired cuisine and surf-centric food eatery has a more throwback feelgood vibe aimed at the mass of downtown workers in the West Pender area.

The 1,300 square foot, forty seat dining room and patio features much more influence from Michelin star Regional Executive Chef Stefan Hartmann (formerly of Bauhaus) as well as Meat & Bread and Juke Fried Chicken co-founder Cord Jarvie running things.

In keeping with Tacofino's tradition of menus designed to be unique to each location, Hartmann has created a few new taco (Pacific cod, beef, duck, and tofu) and burrito options (pork belly, crispy chicken, duck, Cod Barbacoa, cauliflower and beet varieties) in addition to their happy hour items (nachos, beef tamales, and crispy octopus).

The restaurant's design is once again from the mind of local designer Shiloh Sukkau. The new location has a more retro classic feel to it with influences from the rustic yet glamorous imagery of mid-century Mexican resorts.

Sukkau has crafted a getaway space with walls and ceiling bathed in pool blue, woven bar stools, red mesh patio chairs, pink concrete modular two-tops, a recycled marble terrazzo bar, and striped upholstery throughout.

The newest Tacofino is dubbed "Oasis" because the counter-service eatery stands out amidst the surroundings of the Financial District's massive concrete landscape.

Oasis offers the same relaxed yet vibrant Tacofino feel with its own resort-inspired decor and space where guests can enjoy the familiar brand of Baja meets west coast fare.
