Picture a place with beautiful sandy beaches, a warm climate, outdoor adventures galore, and plenty of tasty spots to savour Mexican food. You might think of Mexico, but Kelowna can also be described in the same way! Here are a few great Mexican spots to try while you #exploreKelownalocal. 

El Taquero Taqueria 

Tacos at El Taqueria

Street style tacos to the next level is one of the best ways to describe El Taquero. Mix and match from a wide variety of tacos from housemade vegan chorizo (Papas Veganas) to Asada Beef Brisket. You’ll have to go back multiple times just to try all of the different tacos, which won’t be hard to do since they are so delicious. 

Ki’Bok Mexican Restaurant & Cafe 

Organic Mexican coffee from Chiapas, housemade hot chocolate (made with 70% pure chocolate), and freshly made churros, are just a couple of items you can find at Ki’Bok. A truly hidden gem of Kelowna, tucked away on a side street off of Pandosy Street in Pandosy Village you will find a cute small house converted into a quaint Mexican cafe. 

Hector’s Casa

When you step into Hector’s Casa you feel as you transported into Mexico, from the beautiful decor to hidden oasis patio – sipping a margarita on the patio (*patio is open depending on weather and season) on a warm day, you could swear when you leave the restaurant you are actually in Mexico. You might have to pinch yourself to remind yourself you are actually in Kelowna. 

Latin Fiesta 

A name that comes up often when you ask locals where the best Mexican food is – Latin Fiesta. Think of delicious homecooked Mexican Cuisine that provides a comforting warm hug. 

Cantina del Centro 

One of the newest restaurants, located in the heart of Kelowna on Bernard Ave is Cantina del Centro. We asked local Bobby Bissessar where his favourite cocktails in Kelowna are and he excitedly exclaimed “the entire margarita list at Cantina del Centro.” Pair a margarita with a pork and pineapple enchilada or one of their fun and flavourful tacos such as the Avocado Frito or The Argentine (Red Wine Braised Beef Served Over Roasted Squash & Kale – yum!).
