One of my two fave places for tacos...Tacofino Commissary, in my hood on East Hastings. Vegetarian and vegan options. Really good margaritas. Casual and affordable and really tasty. I am here a lot. Also a Gastown location and two food trucks that make the rounds.

My other fave taco place...La Taqueria. Take out or try and find a seat (good luck!). The horchata (spiced rice milk) is YUM. Great vegetarian and vegan pinche-style tacos. Downtown and Crossroads.

My picks for the best smoothies in Vancouver and how to select a smoothie that is superfood, not junk food.

Taste-testing smoothies around Vancouver, the top picks—from Gastown to Commercial Drive—were delicious and nutritious, and full of superfoods and organic ingredients, and no sugary frozen yogurt.

Mezcaleria - in my hood, on Commercial Dr. From the folks at La Taqueria...but not just tacos. Easy skytrain from downtown. Amazing drinks. Great vegetarian and vegan options. This is the 'flaming vat of cheese'. If you eat dairy...eat this. OMG. Open for brunch...killer brunch.
