More Tacos, Please | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

More Tacos, Please

Vida y Tacos is Bend's newest taco hub

If there's one thing that Bend loves more than craft beer and working remotely, it's tacos. With that being said, there's yet another source for traditional and unique street tacos. Vida y Tacos, which translates to "life and tacos," offers up traditional Mexican fare including cochinita, al pastor and tinga chicken tacos. But it's the "extraordinary" taco menu that has us coming back for seconds.

I sampled a variety of these outside-the-box offerings, including Korean BBQ tacos served with miso chili mayo, Ahi tacos served inside of a cabbage shell and crispy chicken tacos served with habanero ranch. The fast-casual taco hub is vibrantly and offers easy take-out options or seat-yourself dining. Vida y Tacos replaces the shuttered Ajii Asian Kitchen. Aside from their colorful dining menu, the spot also features "adult slushies" and margaritas by the pitcher.
