I had been to the first store, in Fourways, with some friends and had a fab time. So when I heard they were opening up two franchise stores: the first in Parkhurst, and the second in Bedfordview later this year, I was thrilled.
Salsa Mexican Grill Parkhurst opened its doors at the end of May and let me tell you, I haven’t seen so many people as excited about a restaurant before. Guess it’s because it’s different – which means it’s all about starting a new trend, right Joburgers? Yes, we know how you roll.
Not to say we didn’t love our choices of Joburg dining before, but it can get a little boring at times when you find yourself choosing between pasta, steak and seafood at almost every restaurant.
Salsa, on the other hand, promises to keep your taste buds screaming for more, your tummy satisfied, and your social life in check… and perhaps your contract with Uber extended until further notice.
With a variety of delicious food from nachos, to tacos and burritos to their ever-so-popular Margarita jugs (in different flavours, ladies and gents) as well as craft tequila, there really is no reason for you not to pay them a visit. And what’s a meal without dessert, right? For this there’s nothing better than a plate of Churros (fried-dough pastry) to go down with a jug or two (dare we say three?) of Margarita.
Brothers Yianni and Savva Raftopoulos, the owners, are there to make sure your every need is attended too… and trust me this place is a total mood booster. From the menu, to the vibe, there’s no reason not to book yourself a table for this weekend. And perhaps for the next few – I heard they get fully booked pretty quick!
