The café is just another unassuming storefront of darkly tinted glass in the Atrium Centre plaza on University Drive. Do not let its exterior fool you though, because just like their caveman logo on the wall inside and their roving taco truck, every bite packs a wallop. With a motto like “Changing the world, one taco at a time,” be prepared to have your taste buds rocked.

With tacos named The Encino Man, Stone Age Shrimp, and The Gatherer, you can expect something big. We tried both The Hunter and The T-Rex, which did not fail to satisfy with prehistoric-sized flavors. The Hunter is a taco (hard or soft shell) filled with grilled steak and served with lettuce, tomato and shredded cheddar cheese. Do not confuse a simple creation as a plain one; the steak was tender and full of flavor highlighted by fresh ingredients. The T-Rex followed the same format except with juicy grilled chicken that burst with taste with each bite. We also had a taste of their special, a crispy conch taco that was a dazzling delight of spicy with a wasabi cream, cabbage slaw, and bleu cheese. 

BC Café does much more than tacos with a selection of burgers, sliders, wraps and sides. The avocado dip is slightly creamy in taste with a zest of lemon to accentuate the natural flavors of the fruit. The Buffalo chicken sliders – a daily special – is a mouth-watering mini-sandwich of shredded chicken with buffalo sauce that is the right balance of spicy and sweetly tangy. I was a little disappointed I did not get to try anything from their breakfast menu if this is what it serves for lunch.

The warm interior of wood floors, high tables and comfy, lounge chairs invite you to get comfortable. Then be prepared for a hearty taste to satisfy the most voracious predator (or insatiable herbivore) in you. Do not pass up the chance to try BC Café. And keep a look out for their taco food truck (BC Tacos) in a neighborhood near you.
