Vegan Burrito! Visiting Bandidas Taquiera

I am fabulously addicted to Bandidas Taquiera in Vancouver, BC. The first time I went there, I had their vegan 'eggs' benny, "hicks" style: served on a corn muffin with guacamole, salsa, & tomatillo. This time, I tucked into the Ronny Russel burrito, choosing to have it baked with enchilada sauce, vegan cheese, and vegan sour cream. It was sooooo yummy, and also super filling... filling enough that I was able to turn this monster into two meals. One thing I love about Bandidas is their generous portions, especially considering they add so many veggies into everything :) My whole wheat burrito was stuffed with roasted yams and onions, fresh guacamole, black beans, green salsa, purple cabbage, & pumpkin seeds <3 lovelovelove. Can't wait for my next trip across the water, so I can sink my teeth into another one of their delicious dishes :)
Bonus: The owners and staff of Bandidas strive to support eco-friendly practices, use fresh, local food, and operate a bicycle for transportation of food. Their dishes, tables, chairs are all re-used items. Read their 'About Us' section found on their website for more information: These are the kinds of businesses we should be supporting :)

peace, love, food <3

I am going to be in Vancouver very soon and will make a beeline to Bandidas Taqueria. Any other good vegan-friendly places I should try while there?

I've only ever had the opportunity to visit Dharma Kitchen and The Naam, but they are pretty fantastic, too :) I think Bandidas is my favourite, though
