Taco shop alert! Gastown is home to a sweet new family-owned Mexican joint called Tacomio, led by Fhernando Llanas, former executive sous chef of The Vancouver Club. He and his wife, who’s also a chef, specialize in street-food-style stewed tacos (or guisados). And good news: they’re focused on sourcing organically, locally and seasonally.
The menu features about ten tacos with a rotating daily feature. They’re mostly meaty, but veggie-loving diners will appreciate the vegan and vegetarian options like roasted poblano pepper, roasted vegetable marrow and a fingerling potato version served on a kale taco.
With only nine seats, this Abbot Street space is tight and you may have to take your tacos to go. But with this spring weather rolling in, a Tacomio feast could make for an excellent picnic at Crab Park.
