Tacofino
This urban icon started as a hippie food truck on Vancouver Island, specifically in a surf shop parking lot. It has since blossomed into digs in Gastown, Yaletown, and Hastings-Sunrise—with an eatery and two food trucks downtown too. Chef Stefan Hartmann, who once ran a Michelin-starred restaurant in Berlin, now captains these elevated taco bars along with founder Jason Sussman. Expect nuances like chorizo-kale, pork "al pastor" with pineapple, and chicken with pickled vegetables, all on soft wheat tortillas for $6–7. Meat-free options also shine, like "vegetable scrapple"—a delicious fritter of squash and chickpeas, topped with herbed tomatoes. And don't overlook the octopus tostada: Tacofino not only sources seafood sustainably, but it participates in Vancouver's Climate Smart program and is working towards being a zero-waste business.
