La Catrina $10 Taco Tuesday

La Catrina Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Went veggie on Taco Tuesday at La Catrina! I didn't look too hard at which options were vegan, but it is likely they would just remove the cheese for the most part.

The Taco Tuesday offer is five (5) tacos plus choice of pop for $10 if all-veggie tacos, $11 if you have some meat tacos in there. Normally tacos are $3 each and sodas are also $3, so you're getting your meal for almost half price.

Of their four regular veggie tacos, the only one that was curiously interesting and somewhat tasty was Papas Mexicanas (Mexican potatoes with drizzled cream and parsley). Everything else was so boring I needed hot sauce or pickles to liven them up.
Overall taste was OK, especially considering I deliberately went veggie here, but vegetarians who aren't there for a deal on their meal should definitely consider eating elsewhere.

That said, tacos everywhere do give you good bang for your buck with lots of fillings and it's no different here. In fact, if you are careful, you can peel off one of the two taco shells and divide the generous fillings into two tacos that you can fold and eat in the "proper way" and with considerably less fear of the fillings spilling out.

Mediocre score for taste but bonus points for price for portion and their daily specials (announced on Facebook) which really help with budget eats.

They had some interesting Mexican sodas, and I settled for the non-alcoholic sangria. Also turns out to be non-fruity, but it did have a alcohol-like flavour and wasn't too intense.

TIP: They advertise a free T-shirt in exchange for a review on the spot. I didn't take them up on it because I didn't want to be pressured to give an excellent review, but you could certainly try taking them up on it. While T-shirt quantities last.
