Restaurant theme song according to me: Echame la culpa - Luis Fonsi and Demi Lovato 🎵💃
There is not much better on a hot afternoon in Johannesburg than whiling away your time sitting at a relaxed restaurant with its tables spilling out onto the pavement, having drinks with friends 🍹🍹 clink clink!
Today was just the day for Salsa, the Mexican restaurant that’s popped up all over Johannesburg and has also opened a couple of branches in Durban.
It’s popularity can be attributed to its fun atmosphere (I mean, how can it not be fun when there’s an abundance of sombreros around?!), casual Mexican food, generous portions perfect for sharing and reasonable prices.
You can create your own Mexican style bowls, quesadillas, burritos or tacos or choose from the pre-selected options on the menu. Today the heat made us too lazy to create our own dishes and we chose the mamacita (tortilla, jalapeño pesto, mozzarella, feta, grilled red peppers and roasted chilli corn) and the señorita quesadilla (tortilla, tomato, chicken, mozzarella, fajita vegetable and guacamole) and shared a jug of frozen margaritas 😋 delicious!
The nachos, burritos and churros are also good, you can’t go wrong (especially after one, two or five of those margarita jugs - try the raspberry for something fresh and different!)
Happy National Cheese Day! I know families have their own traditions, but in my house we open our gifts in the morning, sing dairy carols, then have a melty lunch of #steak#quesadilla with #mexicancheese and all the fixings.
Raise your hand if you think Saturdays are for comfort food! 🙋🏻 Comfort to me is mac n cheese, pizza, or a good quesadilla. (All hard to achieve when you can’t have gluten or dairy!) 🙈 I’m happy to report that this quesadilla legit tastes like the real thing...and I’ve tried every vegan cheese and GF tortilla I can get my hands on. I used @followyourheart tortillas + vegan cheese slices fried in a teeny bit of avocado oil + sprinkled with sea salt. Serves with a little guac and hot sauce on the side and.... magic, pure and simple. If you can’t find this brand, we also love @sietefoods and @miyokos_kitchen Happy eating, friends!
What is your all-time favorite comfort food?
