Mmmmmmm boy! We love tacos! We want to scream it from the roof tops we love tacos so much. And while there is no shortage of places to get tacos in the Van city area, truly authentic tacos are a little harder to find. We're talking about the ones you find in Mexico, sold from a cart or impossibly small store front, and made with the "less desirable" cuts of meat. That's why we're so stoked to have found La Taqueria on Hastings street. Small, just a little tacky, horchata on the old school beverage tumbler, and a grill that is turning over meat faster than El Gregor can turn perfectly good roads into bike lanes. We opted for truly authentic, and got 4 tacos de lengua. For those whose 8th grade spanish is rusty, that's beef tongue. We know, sounds awful right? Wrong! Try it and you will not be disappointed. Of course, there are plenty of other options, all topped just right with all in house made accoutrements. Even the details, like pink pickled onions, and queso fresco are supplied in abundance. Did we mention horchata? Google it...it's yummy. We could eat there literally everyday. More pics after the break.
