Victoria Day is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday preceding May 25, in honor of Queen Victoria’s birthday. As such, it is the Monday between the 18th to the 24th inclusive, and thus is always the penultimate Monday of May. The date is simultaneously that on which the current Canadian sovereign’s official birthday is recognized. It is sometimes informally considered the beginning of the summer season in Canada.

The holiday has been observed in Canada since at least 1845, originally falling on Victoria’s actual birthday. It continues to be celebrated in various fashions across the country; the holiday has always been a distinctly Canadian observance. Victoria Day is a federal statutory holiday, as well as a holiday in six of Canada’s ten provinces and all three of its territories. In Quebec, before 2003, the Monday preceding 25 May of each year was unofficially the Fête de Dollard, a commemoration initiated in the 1920s to coincide with Victoria Day. In 2003, provincial legislation officially created National Patriots’ Day on the same date.

Best Nachos in Vancouver

Source: Best Nachos in Vancouver

It was a chilly, wintry Saturday afternoon when we drifted into La Casita in Gastown. Downtown Vancouver had seen its first snow of the season and while we spent the day gazing with anticipation at the local ski hills, for now, we were just plain cold.

What better way to warm up then, than a hearty Mexican feast of nachos? At La Casita, there are two types of nachos offered. Texas Nachos for $9.50 – as you’d expect, a platter of crispy tortillas, draped in cheese, salsa and other toppings. And Nachos, for $8.50 – a simple alternative centred around a bowl of melted cheese.

In the spirit of adventure, I decided on a shot of mezcal to warm me up, a Dos Equis chaser – and to try the alternative, simple Nachos, with a guacamole side, before following that up with a chorizo chimichanga. Sure, I was cold – but I was also hungry.

When the nachos arrived, their simplicity was striking – the thick, homemade tortilla chips orbiting the bowl of molten cheese and chunky tomato, like warm, crispy meteorites gravitating towards a golden, gooey sun, glowing red with salsa flares.

Dunking straight in, the cheese dripped from the chip, its viscosity higher than fondu but varied, as if it were a blend of cheeses, some of which had melted more than others, making for a more interesting dip.

The thickness of the cheese was perfectly matched by that of the chips, which were sturdy enough to guarantee a full helping of cheese with a sprinkling of salsa in each scoop.

On the side sat a mixed, albeit high quality, offering. The guacamole tasted homemade, fresh and zesty, but while the salsa roja and salsa verde were also obviously homemade, neither were very spicy or memorable. The mezcal on the other hand.. pure fire.

But I digress. Back to the cheese. Or rather, the chips, which we ran out of. We asked for another helping, but instead of being served more of the thick, crunchy nacho chips, we were given a basket of thin, snacky chips. Sure, they were fine – but it wasn’t the same and it felt like an inferior option.

If I’m honest, that is how I felt about the rest of the feast. The food which followed was nothing special and the service overall was patchy. No sooner had our mains arrived than our nacho dish was gone – without regard for whether we had finished or not.

Yes, the idea of a Mexican fondu sounds amazing and it was a pleasurable – and gooey – dip into an interesting alternative. But I needed something more substantial. Back to the Texas Nachos I think.
