Gorgeous #bluesky day over the #LionsGate Bridge! #Vancouver (at Lions Gate Bridge)
In a city like Vancouver, coffee is nearly a religion with a coffee house on every corner.
There’s still time to tantalize your taste buds on the 2nd Annual Vancouver Foodster Barista Signature Beverage Challenge. Until September 30th, Vancouver Foodster is challenging 7 of the city’s baritsas, tea crafters and soda jerks to craft a unique beverage for the competition (cannot already exist on…
El Azteca Mexican Kitchen & Bar, is a stylish restaurant located near Yaletown / Roundhouse Station. The tequila & mezcal specialists was a location that impressed us on a recent Tasting Plates event. Having just had a small tasting on the event, we decided to return to explore more of their full menu’s flavours.
I’d always been intrigued (and a bit worried) as to why it never seems busy when I walk past on my commute home from work, but have since realized that its clientele appears to eat later in the evening. It was busier when we arrived about 7pm and then was quite busy when we left just over an hour later.
We sampled a few items from the menu and were pleased with everything from the taste to the price. The varied menu and massive tequila & mezcal menu makes it a tough decision to settle on what to choose.
Starting off with the day’s special; Queso Fundido a rich and creamy zesty melted cheese and sausage mix, eaten with tortillas.
For a main, I chose Chorizo Tacos – spicy Chorizo sausage and creamy avocado in warm tortillas.
Billy (@billyforce) chose Carne Asada for his main; chile adobo rubbed, grilled Angus steak strips with rice and refried beans. We also added a side of house made quacamole & chips from their revolving $5 appetizer & drink menu.
Overall everything felt authentically Mexican (not that I’m sure of its authenticity) and judging by the patrons and staff, they seemed to agree.
Try El Azteca Mexican Kitchen & Bar for yourself and get your own taste of Mexico at 1130 Mainland Street, Vancouver.
Open for Lunch and Dinner Tuesday to Sunday.

Tegan and Sara – Rogers Arena – September 9, 2014
Starting with the Vancouver dates, Tegan and Sara join the fun on Katy Perry’s The Prismatic World Tour. Performing before some of the largest audiences they’ve ever played for, the twins’ charismatic stage presence won over the audience and had them hopping in their seats as their 35 minute set warmed up Rogers Arena. While the audience might…
