Si Senior Taqueria
Si Senior Taqueria is the perfect place to start our list! This Shaughnessy Street taco joint is a casual favourite of ours, and for good reason!

Not only do they have all the classics available to dine in, but they also have family packs available for take out! For $42.25, you get an abundance of food! A tray of your choice of chicken pork, beef, or rajas con crema, 12 corn tortillas, rice, salad and beans, and your choice of salsa! What a great deal for a family meal, or for sharing with a group of friends! You can celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the coziness of your own home with the help of the Mexican Gourmet!
Taps and Tacos
For some, Cinco de Mayo is as much about the drinks as the food, and that’s perfectly acceptable! That’s where Taps and Tacos comes in! From the tasty tacos (available in varieties of 4″ or 6″) to the impressive drink menu, they are a great place to bring friends on a night out! Not only do they have an expansive list of beers on tap from local breweries, they also have a list of innovative cocktails, too! As well as a signature margarita that will transport you to a beach in sunny Mexico! Check out their instagram page for a preview of the tasty taco treats to come.
Original’s Cafe Mexicano
Original’s Cafe Mexicano is a Port Moody favourite who’s motto “Nothing Beats the Authentic” draws all sorts of Tri-City residents to their cozy Port Moody location. From Mexican and local beers, to warming “sopa de frijol” (black bean soup), to their varied flavours of tasty tacos, the offerings at Original’s cannot be beat! Check out their Instagram page for a sample of an evening to come at the cozy cafe.
