I can't attest for their whole menu and to be honest wasn't too keen on Mexican sandwiches but the fish burrito is delicious! The place is cute and authentic feeling. I went back for a second one this week it was so good. The only thing extra I wish they had were a few different housemade hot sauces or sauces... More

There is no decor to speak of. I had the Pollo Parilla it was good with a kick of heat. It had good flavor and the price was 10.50 ...average for a lunch. The service was okay and seemed like a family run business as there was a child running around and interacting with the server/cashier. There was a steady... More

We wanted Mexican food and Las Tortas popped up. Pleasantly surprised at the authentic menu selection. We had Tortas with chorizo and el pastor. I actually found these better than Tortas I've tried in Mexico as I found them less greasy. Great place - will visit next time we are in Vancouver!

This spot has delicious sandwiches that are about as authentic as you can find in Vancouver. The shop makes their own habanero hot sauce which is very hot and extremely delicious. I basically go there just to have a sandwich drenched in this salsa.

Hi Jeremy Thank a lot for your review, Have you tried the Torta Ahogada? Is a pulled pork sandwich drowned in red salsa and even if you wish you can substitute the red salsa for habanero. More

Had the carne asada torta and loved it. Super fresh ingredients with loads of flavour. Not as good as my experiences in SoCal but very tasty. Little on the pricey side, but will definitely return.

I had a chili relleno and my wife had tacos. My chili relleno arrived about four minutes after I placed my order. That told me they microwaved my dish. It was spotty part was warm and part was cold. It was bland and soggy. The tacos were not bad and the salsas were just so so. Not a place I... More

My company ordered catered meals from this place and besides everyone hoovering it down like there was no tomorrow, my Mexican coworker crushed the remainder chips, tossed them in the bowl of red salsa, and drank straight it was so good! The fish tacos were soooo dreamy. Vegetarians and vegans were pretty jolly too. I lived ten years in Mexico... More

Being from the States and happening upon this place while making a brief stop in the neighborhood was such a blessing. Nothing like having a hungry troupe of guys and all of them having their appetites met with authentic reasonably priced deliciousness. We pretty much ordered one of everything and all of the dishes were good. Will come back the... More

Las Tortas focus on that particularly delicious central Mexican sandwich served in a Portuguese bun. While this Cambie establishments focuses on tortas, you will also find solid and well-prepared Mexican standards here. At lunch the small place will fill up, but it's probably the only such restaurant within the area, offering authentic fare to locals. Prices are a touch high... More

I had the pollo pibil and it was good. You don't have a choice in customizing the toppings, and It didn't stand out as amazing but I'll definitely come back and try something else another time.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
