Bandidas Taqueria


If you’re a vegetarian looking for a serious Mexican fix, it doesn’t get much better than this homey Commercial Drive nook, which features tasty, veggie-loaded spins on classic dishes like burritos, tacos, fajitas and enchiladas. We like the Ronny Russell burrito, which bursts with roasted yams and onions, fresh guacamole, black beans, purple cabbage, and pumpkin seeds. Of course, we here at the Straight are also suckers for a good brunch, and Bandidas serves up the best between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily, which gives us more than enough time to get down to the Drive on a hungover Saturday.

Popular options include hearty dishes like huevos rancheros (made with handmade tortillas), or a bowl of Mrs. Cohen spicy tortilla soup, which comes finished with avocado, tortilla chips, feta, cilantro, and two poached eggs. If you don’t make it in time for the full brunch menu, a smaller list of breakfast items is available all day long. Vegans needn’t worry: many items on the menu can be made to suit your needs, too. If your sweet tooth is nagging at you after you’ve gorged, the cinnamon flan is a must.
