La Casita Gastown
Mexican Food Restaurant
Contact: 604 646 2444
The original La Casita was opened by my Moms in 1990 at the Riviera of Powell. She made a good name for the business and got herself a big following in the community by serving deadly food. However, everyone knows the restaurant business is crazy work, and so after a while she decided it was too much for her. She wanted to spend more time on art, which is her first love. The little restaurant morphed into a store for a short time, but did not prove to be lucrative. Then in 1995, I re-opened the restaurant, made the building bigger, and acquired a liquor licence. Progressively building over the years, the restaurant really started to rock in 2002. I decided it was time for a new challenge .. Vancouver! Between city regulations, overpriced professionals, lease agreements, and junkies, I’ve been ready to jump off a cliff many times. But like a Mexican Phoenix, we rose again from the fire in a Violet Flame of glory! Now we are ready to open more locations sometime in the future. Anyway, I just want to say THANK YOU to all of my customers for your ongoing support. Hope to see you soon!
