Seeing Everything From Lucky Taco’s Unique Table 31 In Kitsilano


A long time ago we posted a reader’s poll listing what we considered to be the top five restaurant tables in Vancouver. We received so much in the way of reader feedback – both positive and negative that we’ve decided to shine a brighter light on the subject, one excellent table at a time. You’ll find more great tables here.


When it’s not sunny or otherwise gorgeous out the action at Kitsilano’s Lucky Taco is anchored by the bar and the tables closest to it. When it’s nice out, however, it’s all about the patio. And yet neither of those sections of the restaurant – now enjoying its second summer – offers up the best seat in the house. That honour goes to #31, the high-top, buttoned-down caramel leather gangster table sandwiched between the kitchen and the front door. Seating five comfortably (“six if it’s a fiesta,” says co-owner James Iranzad), it’s the only table of its kind in the restaurant. From its unique vantage point you can not only see all of the restaurant’s comings and goings but also see and smell all of the food leaving the pass, much of which wafts right past as servers exit to the patio. Check it out the next time you get a hankering for a fried chicken taco.
