Gastown’s Tacofino Turning Tough Times Into ‘Good Times’ With New Pop-Up

The Goods from Tacofino

Vancouver, BC | On Wednesday, April 21, Tacofino is launching a sandwich and snack pop-up named Good Times because, let’s face it, we could all use some good times right now. Inspired by nothing more than a desire for a delicious sando, Good Times sandwiches will be exclusively available on Tacofino’s Gastown patio menu for dine in or takeaway, as well as via delivery on DoorDash. To support the hospitality industry, $2 from every sandwich purchased for the first week of the Good Times pop up will go towards supporting the Vancouver Food and Beverage Community (VANFBC).

Tacofino co-founder Jason Sussman and Managing Partner Gino Di Domenico have teamed up with chefs Jamie Cholack, Paulis Langins and Kevin Reimer to create Good Times as a response to recent public health orders on indoor dining. With a desire to get creative with unused kitchen space and to give Vancouverites a tasty respite amid the ongoing challenges of BC’s third-wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the chefs have created delicious sandwiches that taste almost as good as your former social life. Did we mention that all sandwiches come with a side of Dorito-flavoured tater tots? Here are the goods from Good Times:
