Fayuca – Northern Pacific Mexican Food

We'd like to introduce you to Fayuca, a new restaurant in Yaletown from the owners of Nuba. 

Fayuca is a term used in Northern Mexico to describe petty contraband goods smuggled over the border like clothes, liquor, and food. In the context of Yaletown’s newest restaurant, Fayuca is inspired by the free flow of flavours and ideas across borders, up and down the Pacific Coastline. Located in the former Hamilton Street Grill (1009 Hamilton, at Nelson), this beautifully designed restaurant seats 100+, including patio.

Fayuca is the brainchild of Vancouver’s Ernesto Gomez and Mexico City’s Jair Téllez. Ernesto is one of the minds behind local favourite Nuba and was the creative force behind the re-invention of the Waldorf Hotel and the Fox Cabaret. Jair has emerged as one of Mexico’s most important and progressive chefs. His restaurants Laja, MeroToro, and Amaya have been featured in the New York Times and listed among the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

Fayuca only sources products from the best farms, fisheries, and suppliers. Farmed products are organic or chemical free, whenever possible. Seafood products are sustainable and wild caught. The menu has something for everyone as there are numerous vegan options.
