Restaurant We Love!- Tacofino Ocho
October 19, 2018
Tacofino has added yet another Vancouver location to their roster, just opened steps to Olympic Village!
Dubbed “Ocho,” this is the sixth brick-and-mortar location for the B.C. powerhouse that began as a humble food truck in a Tofino parking lot.
Each Tacofino takes on its own style and additions to the core menu, this newest location is in a 2,800-square-foot space on East 5th Avenue in a refurbished art deco-era heritage building, offering seating for 100 including a beautiful bar space.
On the menu: Tacofino Ocho features a lineup of fire-grilled, char-roasted meat and vegetable dishes developed by co-founder Jason Sussman and Tacofino’s Michelin-starred Chef Stefan Hartmann. In addition to an assortment of tacos such as crispy cod, rapini, squid and sweet potato and leek varieties, Ocho also offers new share-plate options such as whole grilled rockfish, half chicken, grilled pork belly and top sirloin as well as starters like grilled romaine salad, queso fundido, empanadas, and pozole.
From the bar, customers can opt for craft beer selections, tequila-based cocktails, sangria, caesars, and more.
Tacofino Ocho is located at 8 East 5th Avenue in Mount Pleasant.
Open Sunday-Wednesday 11am-10pm and Thursday-Saturday 11am-midnight.
