Bandidas Taqeria, Commercial Drive, Vancouver
So I love visiting Vancouver, and British Columbia in general, because I have so many more food options. Not only are there vegetarian restaurants, but the menus often list vegan and raw options as well. It’s awesome to be recognized and to have choices.
I had Chile Lime Fajitas – marinated tempeh with sautéed strips of poblano chiles, onions and red peppers, served with rice and beans, salsa, sour cream, red cabbage and tortillas. It was amazing.
The Ronny Russell burrito was stuffed with roasted yams and onions, fresh guacamole, black beans, green salsa, purple cabbage, and pumpkin seeds, while the Camillo burrito had spicy breaded walnuts, pinto beans, cheese, purple cabbage, fresh red salsa and sour cream. A great combination of sweet and spicy, soft and crunchy.
Bandidas Taqeria, at 2781 Commercial Drive, is only two blocks from the Commercial-Broadway SkyTrain station. It’s worth the trip – I promise!
