My family and I like this place, so we want to share our thoughts with you about Salsa.
Salsa has many new additions to their menu. Now they serve juicy local roast chicken and other Peruvian foods.
We have tried a few of the new choices, including the coriander pilaf. This came with homemade salsa that went extremely well with the pilaf.
We also tried the lomo saltado which contains beef sautéed with onions, tomatoes and fried potatoes, and for flavor they added vinegar and soy sauce. Once we tried it, we couldn’t stop!
The chicken they use is fresh, local chicken. They make their chicken very juicy and use original Peruvian spices. They also have a few side orders such as french fries and fried chicken.
In addition, they serve some famous drinks from Peru. The photo below is called Chicha it is made from purple corn.
