Quick Bite – Chihuahua’s Mexican Grill

Tacos are great. Do any of you dislike tacos? Of course not. Earlier this year a new Mexican place opened up in the back of Malone’s on Seymour at Pender in Vancouver. The place caught my eye as I drove by late last week. Chihuahua’s has a quasi authentic Mexican menu offering up everything you’d expect to see in a north of the Mexican boarder Mexican joint. Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and taco salad all with your choice of shredded beef, pulled pork, or chicken.

Tacos!
Tacos!

I opted for 3 tacos which set me back $9. One beef, one pork, one chicken. They were all fairly mediocre, generally under seasoned, and all 3 meats were quite dry. For $9 they were very filling so you shouldn’t leave hungry. Overall a fairly forgettable meal and not a place I’m in a hurry to revisit.

Walk a few blocks to La Taqueria and thank me later.

Contest! Win a sweet hat from Nine O’clock Gun Co!

Back in September of 2013 I ordered a hat from a start up in Vancouver called the Nine O’clock Gun Company. The hat was a tribute to the Vancouver Beavers, a baseball team that played in the Northwest League in the early 20th century.

I wore that hat everywhere and everyone wanted to know what it was and where I got it. I took selfies with my hat, I hate selfies.

I took my hat to sporting events.

I wore it until it was completely trashed. I’ve never had a hat last as long as my beloved Beavers hat. Sadly I had to retire it early this year. Last month the fine folks at Nine O’clock Gun Co. reached out to me to do a give away. They let me pick any hat in their collection to replace my Beavers lid, and I picked the 1911 Vancouver Lacrosse Club hat. I played lacrosse growing up and I still beleive it is the best game on earth.
