Como Taperia Vancouver – A little bit of Spain

"Como Taperia" in Vancouver is my new favorite tapas restaurants! They have all the typical fare plus imported tins of different fish! Now that's special.

Fabulous cocktails, marvelous food and a cheerful buzz makes Como a new addition to my favorites list. This is a small place but delivers big flavours, with typical tapas like Patatas Bravas and Garlic Shrimp and some not so typical offerings like speciality imported tins of different fish you can choose from on a dailies sheet.

I know, you’re thinking “Tinned tuna? Why would I go to a restaurant for that?” But this is something special. I had the tuna belly in olive oil and it was amazing. I also recommend the shishitos, little grilled peppers that provide a subtle snap of flavour to your dinner, and don’t forget their cocktails.

All around this small tapas restaurant does not disappoint - make your reservation's early or roll the dice by dropping by. Como tends to lean towards first come, first served, but if you have to wait a bit, pop around to Main St Brewing for a beer and they will text you.
