Chihuahua’s Mexican Grill by Cambie Malone’s Group

Earlier this month I was invited to the launch party of Cambie Malone’s Group’s newest venture- Chihuahua’s Mexican Grill!  Situated just behind Malone’s Bar and Grill on W. Pender (they’re directly connected), it’s a cozy space for not-quite-fast-food and a wide selection of premium tequilas. Head chef Peter Chun is at the helm and personally crafted the […]

Habanero’s Mexican Grill

On my last night in San Diego, I had dinner with the classmates I was training with.  Since San Diego is known for their Mexican food and fish tacos, we decided to go to Habanero’s Mexican Grill which was right beside our hotel. At first we thought Habanero’s was a sit-down restaurant, but it turns […]

Poncho’s Mexican Restaurant

Update: This restaurant has closed. To wrap up our coverage of this year’s Tastes of Latin America festival, we bring you a long overdue review of Poncho’s Mexican Restaurant.  Poncho’s is Vancouver’s second-longest running Mexican restaurant, and they are the longest-running if you base it on never having moved locations.  They’ve been at the West […]

Taqueria Playa Tropical

Wendy and I have recently been on a bit of a quest to find the best restaurant in New Westminster.  We tried some of the overly hyped restaurants at the River Market, but somehow this lesser-known gem slipped our mind.  Taqueria Playa Tropical is an authentic Mexican restaurant on 6th St. that we have been […]

Wild Rice – The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Wendy’s been spending a bit of time down at the River Market at New Westminster Quay, and with me not having been at all yet we decided to go for dinner at Wild Rice.  I vaguely remembered having heard good things about Wild Rice restaurant, and I know it serves fairly healthy food, so it […]

Guacamole Recipe – Healthy and Addictive

Mexican food is in my top 5 national cuisines, so you bet your cojones I’ve had my share of guacamole.  And out of all that guacamole, this healthy recipe handed down from my mother (and slightly tweaked by me) is the best guacamole recipe I’ve tried.  Better than any restaurant, better than any recipe.  Yes, […]

Sal y Limon

People are saying good things about Sal y Limon (as you can probably tell from the banner above), a little Mexican joint nestled between a pizza shack and a bubble tea place in a small plaza on Kingsway and Fraser.  I remember back when I lived in this area another quirky “Mexican” place occupied this […]

Las Margaritas

I think the main reason why L, J and I went to Las Margaritas this day really was to have their margaritas.  L had been raving about them all the time so finally we decided on a day to go. I do like Mexican food.  After that time at Bandidas, I liked it even more.  […]

Bandidas Taqueria

I had drove past Bandidas Taqueria quite a few times and it was last Christmas that I’ve mentioned to L and Jube that we should try it.  However this visit was with neither of them, but with GRock, purely because of our mutual love for sangrias. It was a very casual place, which was funny […]
