You know a spot means business when they make tortillas fresh right in front of you for your tacos. Yep that’s Maizal on Mount Pleasant. It’s tiny, casual and serves some of the most delicious tacos in the city. Don’t skimp out on their homemade horchata either.
Whether you go for the pastor, carintas, carne asada, or plantain, you can’t go wrong here.
A sweet rice milk drink that is both refreshing and tasty. A must try with your tacos.

Always looking for good authentic Mexican food . Was driving along Main Street after running errands. Googled what restaurants were available and decided on Mexican with dine in options.

One of the best tacos and tortilla soup we have had. Lots of meat in both the tacos and soup . The tortilla soup was very flavourful and full of shredded chicken . The mole chicken taco was Moist and plentiful. Wished they had more mole sauce on the tacos . The carnitas was very flavorful as well . Overall generous Portions and very well seasoned .

This restaurant has one of the most authentic and legitimate Mexican foods in Vancouver. Wish I knew about this earlier! The tacos are very flavourful and delicious. The portions are generous and left me feeling full after only two tacos. The tacos came fast too. I love the way that the tortillas are made - so authentic to tortillas eaten in Mexico. I like that they had a variety of sauces.
The best tacos in vancouver, hands down. As a testament, my father in law eats here 5 days a week when he visits from Calgary. The staff are also extremely friendly.
Didn't know I was missing out on this place! Food is excellent, good portions, and reasonable price to boot. Tortilla soup was the best I've had, and the plantain tacos are very unique. I've passed by this place a few times and regret not trying it sooner. Staff are also super friendly - great experience overall. This will be my new go-to when I'm craving Mexican cuisine.
