Restaurant Review: Salsita

Restaurant Review: Salsita

Rating: A++Neighborhood: WrigleyvilleAfter being a SoCal resident for 5 years, my love for Mexican food grew into a full blown passion. For the past few weeks that I'd been in the Windy City, I hadn't come across many taco eateries until I stumbled upon one in my neighborhood...Salsita!IMG_8664 (1).jpgThe menu at Salsita is simple enough - you choose your item, then your meat, then toppings - and the price can't be beat. I waited less than 10 minutes after I placed my order for it to be ready - Modern Family was even playing to keep me occupied during my wait. Given that this spot is walking distance from my current residence, please believe that I will be a regular.IMG_8665.jpgI ordered the 3-taco dinner, which entails: 3 tacos of your choice, rice & beans, and a large Mexican water (aka Horchata) - all for just $9.75. I ordered 1 asada taco, 1 chorizo, and 1 spicy chicken taco which were all seasoned to perfection & topped with cilantro, onion, cheese, tomato, and avocado. The biggest blessing about Salsita is that there is NO extra charge for toppings - including avocado! (#blessed) Although I'm no refried bean fan, the beans and rice were the perfect side dish to my array of tacos. The Horchata also played a great supporting role as dessert to this meal. It was just sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth, but not enough.IMG_8683 (1).jpgHonestly, I couldn't believe that I polished off the entire meal in one sitting - that was NOT the plan - but it was well worth it.Any suggestions for other Mexican restaurants in Chicago?XO -G&GP.S. - Salsita has a $1.25 Spicy Chicken Taco special on Tuesdays! #TacoTuesdaySalsita Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
