About La Mezcaleria


La Mezcaleria serves authentic Mexican food in Gastown and on Commercial Drive. Dishes are inspired by different regions in Mexico, and are made using traditional methods with fresh, west coast ingredients. Along with a range of tacos, guests will find traditional staples such as tostadas, flautas, enseladas and share plates with options for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and carnivorous diets. La Mezcaleria also boasts one of the largest lists of agaves in Vancouver, featuring many rare tequilas and mezcals that can’t be found elsewhere in town. The innovative cocktail list makes use of savoury ingredients, like cilantro, serrano pepper and blue corn, as much as sweet, fruity flavours.

Brunch is served at both locations on Saturday and Sunday, and a daily Happy Hour sees feature drinks and snacks at reduced prices.
