It had been a long time since my last (highly enjoyable brunch) at La Bandidas Taqueria and I was meeting an friend for dinner and wanted something convenient near the Commerical Drive skytrain station, so it seemed like a natural option. Once again, La Bandidas was great. Simple, delicious, vegetarian mexican grub at a fair price. It's fresh and healthy...but there are a few indulgent options if you wanna get cheesy. Nothing innovative or mind-blowing here, but the food is just plain good. This cozy, tightly-packed place is always busy and for good reason. Cool decor, nice servers, and nice flavours.
Special shout out for having one of my top 3 favourite hot sauces on the table: Tapatilo!
On my plate:
MEXICAN BREAKFAST $8.50 Two free-range eggs, 2 corn tortillas, pinto beans, fresh salsa, purple cabbage salad, and guacamole.
My dining companion ordered:
HAMPTON NACHOS $13 (Small) Cheese, smoky-sweet chipotle tofu (organic), pinto beans, onions, sweet peppers, corn, and jalapenos on yellow corn tortilla chips.
*And she said they were the best nachos she'd ever had...
