My friend invited us for a Halloween dinner. She even offered a costume for me, so I decided to go with Collin. Her friend was an organizer, and this restaurant was chosen, because they knew this restaurant’s previous owner.

Tio Pepe’s Restaurante Mexicano is a Mexican restaurant on Commercial Drive, closer to Venables street, and it was first time for us to go to this place.

We ordered some appy to share and a main for each. I’m not familiar with Mexican food except tacos or taco salad. So, I chose taco salad. 🙂 I took pictures of only our foods, as it was first time to meet everybody except my friend and I didn’t want to be rude.

The taco salad was huge, and there was still left even though I shared with Collin as well as others.

The night before, I was searching more restaurants in Victoria for lunch. There were a few that came, and when I showed this restaurant menu, Collin told me that this is a restaurant outside with big container where one of Top Chef Canada contestants works.

Red Fish Blue Fish is an outdoor restaurant at pier and serves Tacones that is taco-cone. It is in a walking distance from Victoria Information Centre. There are a few seating under tents, but they don’t take any reservations.
