Finally, Vancouver has some of the best comidas this side of the border, and possibly the best Cochinita pibil - pulled pork wrapped in a banana leaf - north of the Rio Grande. Funky decor reminiscent of Trader Vic's on a shoestring budget and warm, friendly servers make this tropical little space the latest hot spot. Everything is made from scratch, from the bar to the salsa, even the upholstery and cleverly designed bamboo "rafts of paradise" ceiling. Owner Lila Grace Gaylie and executive chef Shelome Bouvette both hail from Bin 942 (they laughingly call themselves "has bins"), and the room has similarities, mainly in size and energy. Homemade ginger beer is thirst quenching and refreshing, and if you want something with more punch, try the loco limonada: gold tequila and mango liqueur with muddled chili and mango lemonade. Crispy beef taquitos are filled with beef brisket that is slow-roasted in beer and garlic overnight then pulled and combined with onions and barbecue sauce, wrapped tightly in homemade corn tortillas and served with romaine and fresh salsa. The fish tacos promise to be a signature dish and will give Go Fish! a run for their catch: Big chunks of pan seared halibut with queso fresco - an amazing fresh cheese made locally - and mango salsa with two tortillas, beans and rice. Daily dessert creations are sure winners, such as coconut rice pudding wrapped in a flour tortilla and deep fried with a puddle of rum sauce and a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Only complaint: plates are too big for the tables; it's a balancing act, but don't downsize.
