About La Tortilla Mexicana
La Tortilla Mexicana is one of the newest additions to our partner establishments here in The Olive Club. The restaurant features authentic Mexican cuisine that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Each dish follows traditional recipes passed down from one generation to the next and prepared meticulously by their talented chefs.
The restaurant was established a few decades ago. It is owned and operated by an immigrant family that started a new life here in Esquimalt Road, Victoria, Canada. They wanted to share their country’s history with the community so that the family still had a strong connection to the country they’ve left behind.
Through cooking traditional Mexican food, the family shared their history and culture with the rest of the people living in the community. To their surprise, many people flocked to their opening day. From then on, La Tortilla Mexicana started to establish itself as one of the most popular restaurants in town.
Over the years, the family was able to maintain a strong relationship with their customers. Because of their delicious food thoroughly cooked with authentic ingredients, more people started to patronize the business.
Today, La Tortilla Mexicana is regarded as one of the most respected restaurants in town. It’s also one of the cultural foundations of Victoria, Canada because of its rich Mexican-Canadian heritage and influence.
The La Tortilla Mexicana management decided to partner up with us at The Olive Club so that they could better serve the community and their loyal patrons. Through the partnership, they were able to reach more people inside and outside the town of Victoria. Moreover, they were able to extend their cultural influence outside the perimeters of the town.
