Sal y Limon is a small Mexican joint situated on Kingsway. Their menu ranges from tortas and quesadillas to tacos and burritos. On a sunny afternoon, Fasha and I made a trip to this little corner stop for lunch.

I got two tacos ($2.25 each) – Chorizo and Carne Asada (grilled beef). I did not like them.

The beef was boring and bland while the chorizo was desert dry. No doubt, these tacos had the fiery Mexican spirit sucked out of them.

We also ordered a couple of burritos: the Pierna burrito ($8.25) that was slow roasted pulled pork; and Carne Asada Con Queso, which was grilled beef with cheese.

To be honest, I don’t even know which picture is which burrito. They both look so similar, and tasted similar… the similarity being bland.

The vegetables tasted and felt old. Void of any freshness. Just really disappointing.

Needless to say, I was very disappointed by our meal. Our meal failed in representing Mexican cuisine and its incredible flavours.

    I remember when I went last year, it was not too bland; perhaps it was because I covered my tacos with all the sauces they offered; 7 different kinds!! Perhaps by adding the sauces, it will be more flavorful :)

    • Hahaha, I’ll keep that in mind! La Mezcaleria also has some great sauces!

    Really surprised you didn’t like this place. it’s one of the most authentic Mexican restaurants in Vancouver and usually really good. Next time try the horchata and ask for the sauces. They are spicy, so may not be for everyone.

    • I’ve heard great things about this place as well, but I guess I ordered the wrong things… Will definitely need to ask for the sauces next time! :)

    I’ve had just ok foods here. I like Los Cuervos (just on other side of Fraser to Sal y Limon) and La Taqueria better. I also noticed Sal y Limon’s prices have crept up since opening. I *do* like their assortment of self-serve salsas, a la Dona Cata on Victoria Dr (they had 10 !) before they changed names (still open ??). One other note …. I don’t feel comfortable eating at Sal y Limon’s space (fluorescent light hell) and the downtrodden strip mall it’s in.

    • I haven’t been to La Taqueria yet, but it’s on my list! I’m sure that I’ll be more impressed with them, plus its interior looks loads better than Sal y Limon!
