Fresh is Best (Vancouver)
You may recognize Fresh is Best tortilla chips which are available in grocery stores, but the brand actually has a physical location in Kitsilano.
The shop has all your party needs including salsa, dips, chips, taco kits, and other party decor.
I have shopped there a few times as I love their chips and they are priced a bit cheaper (2 for $9) than at other grocery stores.
