In Summary
  • The taco joint at Vima is called Taco Bar. While I'm a big fan of the Mexican Fiesta type décor, I don't think I would want to go back again.
  • The drinks are fairly priced – I had a strawberry margarita (mistake number two, after walking into the place) – which I didn't think was worth the 650 I paid for it.

I'm always looking for tacos that can beat out my steady favourite, Fonda.

Fonda has the best tacos (kwanza the fish ones, the pescado ones. I know you wouldn't expect fish tacos to be great, but when you taste them, you'll wonder how you ever had anything else, and how you ever thought fish tacos were a bad thing).

That being said, because their tacos are so good, everyone else just pales in comparison.

This was definitely true for the taco place at Village Market. You know how Village Market has like 42 different restaurants all of a sudden, and so you're literally and figuratively spoiled for choice when you get there?

Sometimes, choice isn't a good thing. Needless to say, Fonda is still winning the tough taco competition taking place in my heart.

But this is the thing – they're trying to offer a skimped Mexican experience, and it just isn't cutting it.
