The GOODS from Tacofino
Vancouver, BC | Tacofino fans, rejoice — just in time for Cinco de Mayo, the beloved BC brand is returning to action after a brief hiatus and making its Baja-by-way-of-West-Coast fare available for delivery and takeout with new Tacofino-To-Go options beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5.
Available for delivery via DoorDash and takeout with curbside pickup from its Kitsilano location (1909 West 4th Avenue) daily from noon to 8 p.m., the Tacofino-to-Go menu offers tacos, burritos, bowls and kids’ meal boxes. Options also include Tacofino’s famous nachos in a take-and-bake format with guacamole and green chorizo add-ons available in addition to DIY cocktail kits and beer and wine available with any food order.
Making their debut on the menu for Cinco de Mayo are Tacofino-To-Go Family Kits that include a starter of chips and salsa for the kitchen table and come with flour tortillas and limes for an assemble-your-own-tacos experience featuring either carnitas (grilled avocado, white onion, queso fresco, salsa habanero), $36; or roasted sweet potato (spicy grilled asparagus, pinto beans, vegan chipotle mayo, pickled onions, cilantro) $30. Two dollars from the sale of each kit will be donated directly to the Vancouver Food + Beverage Relief Fund to support hourly industry workers in need of short-term assistance due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Tacofino’s new Cocktail Kit options combine tequila, fresh-squeezed housemade juices, salt for rim and garnishes and include:
Classic Lime Margarita, 16 servings, $95;
Tommy’s Margarita, eight servings, $48;
Verditarita Margarita, eight servings for $50; 16 servings for $75;
Paloma, eight servings for $50; 16 servings for $75.
Thirsty Tacofino fans can also complement any food order by adding on single cans or six-packs of beer (Lucky Lager, Cerveza Pacifico, Negra Modelo) or Green Hill Cider as well as bottles of Alamos Malbec or Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc.
“We’ve put in a lot of time in to ensure that the safety of our workers and guests remain the number one priority for us,” says Tacofino Co-Founder Jason Sussman. “We’re looking forward to bringing the Tacofino experience back and seeing all of you again real soon — at a distance.”
