Salsa’s Fresh Mex GrillJuly 24th, 2012 20 comments
Remember when I wrote to Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill back in March?
impatiently waiting for them to bring vegan frijoles and rice to the masses but in the meantime I thought I’d venture there today in the name of research, adventure and sharing my findings with you.
EXPERIMENT: Can Tex-Mex Food be Tex-Mex Without Beans & Rice?! *cue dramatic music, da da daaaaaa*
I had my doubts but as Chief Scientist in this experiment, I had to keep an open mind. Vegans everywhere were depending on me.
Salsa’s will happily make your meal to order, so armed with a copy of their Allergen Information (which clearly states all vegan items), I bravely marched in and ordered my version of the Veggie Packed Bowl – grilled zucchini, broccoli, onion and capsicum with corn chips, salad, guacamole, jalapenos, salsa, salsa fresca and pineapple & mango salsa ($11.95).
The verdict? It was really good! Fresh and tasty, without the heaviness that comes from beans and rice. I suspected the tropical salsa might be a bit much on top of all the other ingredients but I really enjoyed it and it off-set the spiciness of the jalapenos perfectly.
Salsa’s tortillas and taco shells are vegan too so you can mix and match, and they are located in shopping malls around the country so it’s good to know that there is another vegan option when you’re out and about.
I still want beans and rice, though, Salsa’s! Please remember the hungry vegans! xx
