It was a bright and sunny Saturday, and we were just exploring the great outdoors of Port Moody. Since our stomachs started to growl at 4:00 PM, we decided to drop by Originals Cafe Mexicano for early supper.
This place seemed to be a neighbourhood favourite. It was already quite packed at 4:00PM. From the outside, the Cafe looked like someone’s little house. The vibe was casual and authentic.
Let’s jump right into the food…
Guacamole and Chips – $10.75*
To be perfectly honest, we were let down by the small portion size (for the price). Nonetheless, the guacamole (and pico de gallo) was absolutely delicious. It was fresh, limey, has a little bit of heat, and addictingly salty (in the best possible way). All of this was accompanied by the perfectly crisp chips.
Taco Trio – $14
Left: Pastor. Pineapple + marinated shaved up pork. Sweet tasting; very tropical flavours.
Middle: Steak (my personal favourite). It was roast beef + fresh spices and herbs.
Right: Baja Style Fish. Breaded white cod + avocado + pico de gallo. Drizzled on top is some kind of spicy mayo. This was the most filling of the three tacos we chose.

Some of the best Mexican food we’ve tasted. 🙂
