Your favourite Mexican food cart is missing from Cook St. Village and you can’t make it across the Blue Bridge on an empty stomach. Fret no longer, burrito lovers – La Taquisa‘s opened up a second shop downtown. The cart may be gone but in its place is a brand new space on Blanshard St. boasting a full authentic Mexican menu and long hours to satisfy that taco/burrito/quesadilla craving when it hits.
What do we love about La Taquisa? Aside from the Veggie Rajas Burrito ($8.00), the Baja Shrimp Tacos (5 x $10) and the Tortilla Soup ($4.00), we love that it’s family owned and operated, the food is fresh, authentic, and hand-made, the meat is local (hormone and antibiotic free, too!) and the staff will try their damndest to learn your name.
Find La Taquisa downtown at 1017 Blanshard St. or in Vic West at #120-126 Wilson St., Victoria BC.
