      Beloved Mexican spot La Taqueria has officially opened the doors to its fifth—and largest—location in Metro Vancouver.

      Situated in Vancouver’s financial district at 586 Hornby Street, the 90-seat restaurant offers traditionally prepared tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, which may be filled with proteins such as beef, chicken, and pork or vegetarian mixes like mushrooms and kale, and zucchini, corn, and bell peppers.

      Chips and guacamole and a small selection of desserts—think mini churro cheesecakes—are also available. Slushie lime margaritas, bottled Mexican beers, and draught brews are among the beverage options.

      The space is bright and airy with punches of La Taqueria’s signature turquoise hue decorating countertops and fixtures. Take-out service is available, though there are plenty of booth and bar seats for those eating in. It's easily the most impressive of La Taqueria’s existing locations in the region, which are modeled after traditional Mexican food stands.

      La Taqueria Hornby will host happy hour daily from 3 to 6 p.m., where guests can enjoy $4 margaritas. It’s open Monday to Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to late; and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

      La Taqueria also operates locations on West Hastings Street, Cambie Street, and on Welch Street in North Vancouver.
