When it comes to tantalizing tortillas, there’s a lot to taco-bout right now in Vancouver. Taco spots are HOT, so no wonder Whistler’s La Cantina “urban taco bar” concept is wrapping up a southward expansion into the former Nelson Grocery space in downtown Vancouver. They’ve been prepping for an October open, so expect to get those tacos in your hand soon.
