Mission Burritos Hit Canada

While up in Vancouver, BC this past weekend to play a show with some rad Canadian punk bands, we came across TACO DEL MAR, alleged purveyors of the elusive Mission-style burrito.  Unfortunately, we were unable to sample said Mission-style burrito due to the fact that the “taqueria” closes at 11pm on a Saturday!

If they can’t even get authentic operational hours right, I shudder to imagine what sort of blasphemy they might be trying to pass off as a burrito.  The fact that their mascot appears to be a chili pepper with a dirty sanchez wearing a sombrero does little to comfort me either.

    You know if you want to taste Taco del Mar, you can head down to 2nd & Natoma, or one of their other eight billion international locations, right?

    Taco Del Mar is to the Mission burrito what Domino’s is to New York Pizza. i suppose something is better than nothing . . .

    Four easy steps on how to get the best burritos in downtown Vancouver:

    1) Take Canada Line from Waterfront to YVR
    2) Board AC562 (YVR-SFO)
    3) BART to 24th St.
    4) Go upstairs to El Farolito

    Vancouver does many foods very well. Sadly, Mexican is not one of them.

    It’s been there for years (it was there when I left 3+ years ago), and it is about as good as you’d expect. Vancouver simply doesn’t know shit about burritos. Case in point: most people there think “Budgies Burritos” is awesome. Vegetarian burritos made with refried beans out of a can in an electric frying pan.

    To back me up, one Californian gives this mildly dissenting review: “If I were back home I wouldn’t touch this place.”

    I work right near the Taco Del Mar on 2nd street but won’t ever go in.

    Here’s why: I lived in Seattle for four years and Taco Del Mars were everywhere. I used to get the fish burrito sometimes. The next day I’d be sitting there, minding my own business when suddenly I had to dash to a bathroom, and proceed to have a white-knuckle shit that would clean out that burrito and everything ahead of it in the queue.

    I didn’t go to TDM that often so it took me a while, but I finally figured out the connection. Fish burrito from TDM == 10-15 minutes of painful, sweaty-foreheaded expulsion the next day.

    Maybe a good idea if you’re trying to lose weight or something, but now that I’m back in Cali I don’t have to stoop that low for my mexi fix.

    this is puzzling, however, because while yeager shared some video footage of his piano art around the world, he did not show one with the same baby grand piano that showed up in biscayne bay. now you will never know your potential. at this price point you should be able to find a console or studio upright that has a good musical sound, and a solid touch to the action. learn how to play the piano by focusing first on chords. the price really depends on the features.
