There are plenty of ways to celebrate and honour Black History Month, but one of our favourites is to support local black owned businesses. There is no better way to do so than by dining out or in at any of the incredible black owned eateries Vancouver has to offer. Below, we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favourites. We urge all locals and visitors alike to use Black History Month as a jumping off point for exploring more black-owned businesses in Vancouver, both in February and beyond.
Taps & Tacos
Located in Port Moody just up the street from Rocky Point Park, Taps & Tacos is a quaint, trendy restaurant specializing in fresh, local ingredients. Here, you’ll find plenty of craft beer local to BC, as well as seasonal ingredients and free-run meat. Their dishes, which range from shrimp ceviche to mole enchiladas take inspiration from Mexico and other places around the globe. They also have an entire taco menu with the likes of the iconic Al Pastor, roasted cauliflower, and Korean pork. Bowls are offered for a healthier option, as well as several desserts including churros and vegan peanut butter pudding.
