So we have some great news taco lovers! La Taqueria’s Victoria location will celebrate Day of the Dead on November 2nd with select drink specials and free tacos.
Day of the Dead, or Dia de Muertos, is a widely celebrated Mexican holiday held every year from October 31st to November 2nd. To honour the dead, altars are decorated with candles, flowers, colourful sugar skulls, and a special bread called pan de muerto. Also placed on the altars are favourite foods of the departed, such as fruit and other produce, and traditional Mexican dishes. Traditional celebrations include festive parades with music and performances.
From 3pm-5pm, authentic Mexican tacos will be offered for free to all guests, with a limit of 2 per person. Then from 5pm until late, guests will enjoy $4 margaritas, a regular-priced dinner menu, and a performance by a live DJ.
La Taqueria’s Taco Wednesday special will also be available all day: buy 4 tacos and get the next 2 free.
Originally established in Vancouver, La Taqueria Victoria opened in February 2016, specializing in authentic Mexican tacos. Inspired by vibrant and flavourful street food, traditional recipes use fresh ingredients like Ocean Wise seafood, and local and seasonal meats and vegetables. Homemade salsas and pickles are created with tradition in mind, and tortillas are made in-house with non-GMO corn flour.
