Bandidas Taqueria is a Mexican-inspired restaurant in East Vancouver that's very reasonably priced. The menu is vegetarian but also favors vegan diets. With the use of nuts, tofu and beans, it's hard to miss the lack of meat. They're open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner so a healthy and satisfying meal can be enjoyed throughout the day. From tacos and burritos to nachos and enchiladas, you've got options. Added bonus? They make their corn tortillas in their kitchen. The atmosphere inside is based on being ethically sound, utilizing vintage furniture. Their reason for doing so is because of their devotion to the environment. Local wines and beers mingle with organic and free-range items to produce a socially responsible and healthy environment. They're also constantly looking at ways to give back to the community through fundraisers and aligning themselves with important causes. You can feel good eating here.
