My name is Macey Budgell and in 2005 I started a vegetarian burrito shop in Vancouver, Canada, called Budgies Burritos. Before Budgies, there weren't really any burrito shops in Vancouver; at least none with a good amount of veggie options. Back then, my friends and I would do road trips down the west coast, skateboarding, going to shows and constantly searching out cheap, good burrito/taco shops with different veggie/vegan options. We would even drive over the border on a quick trip to Bellingham to hit up Taco Bell on the regular. We didn't even have a Taco Bell!!
Since Budgies has opened, Vancouver has become home to a bunch of new burrito shops and taquerias, which is awesome, but I still love traveling down the coast in search of cool burrito/taco shops and checking out their veggie/vegan options. Actually, no matter where I travel, I am always looking for rad burrito shops. This blog is about where to find some of the coolest burrito/taco spots with no-meat options for a reasonable price, and to shamelessly plug mine and my friends' bands.
