Dona Cata Mexican Foods5076 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Good, but Need to work on quality control
Submitted Friday, February 1, 2008 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

After living in Los Angeles I developed a love and appreciation for the humble taco. And I love the tacos here, but they could be bigger.

BUT: there was a fatty chunk in my bisteck taco and a good size bone in my carnitas that I bit down on. These are mega blunders in the taco world. Please work on your quality control.

That said, the food was very good and the service and ambience were great. I will be back again, but please: no bones or fatty bits in my tacos ever again -- it hurts my gringo feelings ;-).

People... people....

This is not meant to be offensive, but I think some of the reasons people are not rating this restaurant as well as others is because certain people are ordering non Szechuan food, i.e., chow mein, wonton soup, etc... It is a Szechuan restaurant after all.

And ordering Seafood at a Szechuan restaurant is akin to ordering fresh seafood at a restaurant in Saskatchewan. Sichuan province is land locked; there isn't an ocean within 1000 miles of the place.

If people stick to the spicier Szechuan dishes like Deluxe Dan Dan noodles, General Tso chicken, Mapo tofu, Shredded chicken cold plate appetiser , ginger beef, Mongolian beef, etc... I believe they would enjoy more (though the beef with green vegetable is quite good). Just my opinion.

I have found the staff very helpful in describing dishes if they are asked.

Cheers,
Mike

The cook and owner used to work as a chef on one of the big cruiseship companies that sailed the Orient.

I come here for lunch because it is nearby and a better value than the Thai House and with much better service and faster. It is one of the best bargains in town. For $5.50 you get a crisp spring roll with spicy dipping sauce, a good size side of rice, and the entree of your choice.

I usually get the beef ginger and mushrooms and my coworker orders the egglplant with basil. The vegetables are very well done, not too tender and have great colour. Service is good.
