Lol, it's funny how Mexican food is always mentions or thought of as a fast food. Is there even Mexican high end food?

There are hardly any authentic Mexican restaurants in Vancouver. They're almost all Tex-Mex.

vic & 34th. most authentic tacos i've had in the city.

i ordered 6 tacos and its really filling. i could only pack down 5. oh and the cinnamon milk drink is really tasty too. for lack of a better description its like cinnamon toast crunch cereals' milk.

$2ish/taco depending on if you add cheese.

Tio Pepe's stands out as one of the worst meals I've ever had out at a restaurant.

True enough as I'm from Cali. Granted I haven't tried every Mexican joint in town but all so far all have been dissapointing. At the moment I drive to Bellingham at least once a month to a place called Mi Mexico off the far side of Bellis Fair Mall. Arroz Con Pollo is good there, and their Margaritas come on the rocks and not blended up like some damn Bellini.
