B.C.'s favourite little taco empire continues it's forward march with a seriously-cool, surf-punk inspired joint in Yaletown.
A taco-shaped hole in Yaletown’s heart has just been filled. Widely-celebrated B.C. SoCal-style taco and drinks spot Tacofino opened this week to bring some much-needed Vancouver Island “chill” to the downtown neighbourhood.Tucked in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it slot (previously occupied by a Saladworks) toward the end of Mainland Street, Tacofino’s newest offspring is a gorgeously California surfer-punk deco hangout. Designed by Shiloh Sukkau (who also oversaw their windswept, coastal-oriented Gastown flagship location), this 38-seat restaurant (with a 12-seat patio incoming) brings some serious SoCal cool to Yaletown. Decorated by floor-to ceiling pastels painted by Courtney Presber and surf-centric paintings provided by Caroline Weaver, the walls stretch far upwards to an exposed-wood ceiling—creating a bright, sociable space worthy of repeat visits.The room evokes visions of Keith Haring and classic ’80s collage poster art, and it wouldn’t be difficult to let the mind drift to picture oneself along the shores of Santa Cruz. Coming back to reality, a Lemongrass Chicken Burrito in hand (and a lime margarita within reach), the beach won’t seem so far away at all.
