La Taqueria has recently expanded the menu offerings at all locations, with slushie Lime Margaritas available for $7. Seven Burritos have joined the existing menu of tacos and quesadillas, and are substantial meals on their own—weighing in at approximately one pound per burrito—with authentic Mexican fillings wrapped in fresh flour tortillas. An Al Pastor Burrito bursts with robust flavour from tender pork marinated in achiote chilli, topped with charro beans, pineapple, pico de gallo, and chipotle mayo. The vegetarian Rajas con Crema tempts with a straight-from-Mexico recipe of roasted poblano peppers, black beans, chipotle mayo, sautéed mushrooms and kale, topped with mozzarella cheese. Four additional burrito variations include beef, chicken and fish, all filled with rice, beans, and finished with classic toppings.

La Taqueria Hornby will be open Monday-Thursday from 11am-8:30pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am-late, and Sunday from 12pm-6pm. For more information, please visit

Owners Marcelo Ramirez and Alfonso Sanz opened the first La Taqueria at 322 W Hastings Street in 2009. La Taqueria has grown into a five-location operation, with four more eateries joining the first restaurant on Hastings: Cambie (2549 Cambie St.), North Van (1305 Welch St.), Hornby (586 Hornby St.), and Victoria (766 Fort St.). Menu items at La Taqueria are inspired by traditional Mexican street food, and use local, organic and sustainable ingredients whenever possible.
