Cold Pacificos And A Gabillion Tacos Set To Rule On Hastings…

September 7, 2009 


Inside the soon-to--open La Taqueria on West Hastings, aka the "Pinche Taco Shop" (the F@cking Taco Shop)

I ate so many tacos (con Dos Equis e Pacifico) at a preview of La Taqueria (322 West Hastings) last night that when I rolled out of bed this morning I actually bounced. I love the nearly finished space. It felt much more open and lively than it did when it was the original Nuba, which had a considerably darker charm to it. Now it’s a sparkling, tiny, shoebox, and I wager it’ll fly when they open this Tuesday.


Tacos! Carnitas up front, with pesce to the left and asada to the right

They came fast and furious: savoury pork confit carnitas with pickled onions, chocolatey pollo can mole, evenly spiced al pastor pork sweetened with pineapple, braised and tooth tender beef tongue, cucumber cooled and super beefy asada, juicy pico de gallo-kissed fish, and more.

I’m looking forward to trying them all again very soon. See you next this Tuesday.
