Tacofino Part 2

On part one of my Tacofino post I talked about my love of their fish tacos but I have decided to branch out a bit and try some other items on the menu.

I tried one of the black bean tacos ($3.50) which was filled with black beans, feta cheese, and salsa (a good vegetarian option). I really love black beans so I liked this taco and it was quite filling. I also loved the combo of feta and black beans since feta is one of my favorite cheeses. This taco is really messy so make sure you grab lots of napkins and a fork to scoop up everything that falls out of it. I enjoyed this taco but not as much as the fish and tuna tacos. I probably wouldn’t order this over one of the other two.

I also tried the pork gringa ($4.50) which was like a quesadilla with spicy shredded pork, melted cheese, salsa, and sour cream in a grilled tortilla. I really liked the flavor of the pork and it was very tender with a hint of spice. The tortilla was nice and crispy and the cheese was melted perfectly. The pork gringa was very delicious but it wasn’t quite as special as the fish tacos because it felt like something you could make at home. I would order it again if I had a craving for a cheesy quesadilla.

Both of these items were tasty but not quite as epic as the fish taco and the tuna taco. They are worth a try if you are looking for a little variety but I would still say that the fish and tuna tacos are what you need to try.

A tip to keep in mind: I’m not the only one who is obsessed with Tacofino. Their Robson and Howe location gets very busy at lunch time. If you want to avoid a wait I would suggest going on the early or late side of lunch time because they can be a bit slow bringing out the food since they make it all fresh when you order it.

Recommendation:
Yes, if you are looking for a veggie option or if you love quesadillas.
