TAKE THIS OUT // What to Order from Bandidas, Say Mercy, Mackenzie Room, Belgard Kitchen and Tableau

Take-out has become a coping mechanism for diners and restaurants, helping both endure the long, dark weirdness of 2020. Over the months to come — in the stressed out space between today’s bubbles and tomorrow’s vaccines — Take This Out will focus on the delicious things we can all take home.

Growler Pack for 2

First up is Dana VanVeller, Communications Manager at Bandidas Taqueria

What dish do you think that everyone should try?

We have a ton of growlers on hand, all donated by local breweries and ready to fill, so the very obvious order for everyone is the “Growler Pack for 2”. For $40 (or $50) you can get 2 burritos of your choice, a 32-ounce (or 64-ounce) growler filled with any of our local taps, and a couple chocolate truffles to add a little sweetness. As an extra bonus, we just started offering some truly incredible gluten-free burrito wraps- they’re actually stretchy. Celiacs and the gluten-avoidant can now have a burrito as a burrito! Between that, our vegan offerings, and our Windfall Cider on tap, the growler pack can be totally customized for many specialized diets. (You can bring your own clean growler to be filled, too, and while you’re at it grab a couple reusable cups from home to cut the single-use plastic.)

The only thing that’s easier than take-out is having some handmade items waiting for you in your own freezer, so I’d suggest leaving with a few prepared meals from our freezer. We have our Tortilla Soup, Cornbread, Crazadillas, and a few burritos (gluten-free and vegan options!) waiting for you.

Available: Monday to Friday, 4:00pm to 10:00pm / Saturday & Sunday, 10:00am to 10:00pm.

Where to order it: Click “Order Now” on our website to access our online ordering platform, pop into the north door to talk to the host, or call in your request at 604-568-8224.
