– B a n d i d a s T a q u e r i a – First of all, the Nachos were amazing 10/10 and it was vegan, and that was a small and it’s very filling! I still think about them to this day. I got the burrito but I don’t think i would get it again or the filling inside because the one I got had pineapples (I love pineapples) but in a burrito with beans, not my cup of tea, stick to classic burrito stuffing haha. Burrito: 5.5/10 but really good portions With @__sarahim • • • #mexicanfood #foodheaven #food #foodporn #foodphotography #foodgasm #foodie #foodography #photography #vancouverfoodie #vancouvereats #vancouverfoodblogger #foodblogfeed #foodphotooftheday #foodiepics #veganfoodspot #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshares #veganfood #nachos #burrito #vegannachos
