Kathrin Kilburn is Tour de Taco's route curator!

This Taco Tour will bring you to Vancouver's best taco spots. The flat and easy route holds one big challenge: Pacing yourself - there is a lot of delicious treats to try on the way!

Note from Megan, Bikabout's founder: One of my favorite taco places in Vancouver, Bandidas Taqueria, is not included on this route simply because Kathrin hadn't been there yet. Bandidas is knowledgeable about gluten allergies, have great margaritas and gluten free chocolate cake.
