Salsa Kitchen Restraunt Chiang Mai
Average Mexican food
Recommended dishes: –
Price indication: not cheap; average meal about THB 200-300 / person
Salsa Kitchen has been around in Chiang Mai for a while. First they were located at the reggae area near Zoe in Yellow, now they are on a prime location on Huay Kaew road.
I’ve never been back since years after I got a guacamole that was off, and I believe I didn’t miss much in the years past.
The food isn’t cheap and the dishes aren’t excellent. Many things are too salty: the lemon-grilled chicken, same parts of the beef, fried onion etc.. The tortilla flour is somewhat dry and unappetizing here, the nacho chips a bit light and sometimes salty again. The beans are just beans without any flavour, the Mexican rice was okay and at least not with too much seasoning. The beef inside the burrito a bit funny, almost like the kind of beef you find inside a tin of ragout, and the chicken well-grilled but salty.
Overall, not that great not very bad, but better than Miguel and sometimes better than Loco Elvis, sometimes worse. Miguel and Loco Elvis use too much seasoning powder, and the quality of the tortilla flour varies.
Though there are several places where you can get (California-style) Mexican food in Chiang Mai, my favourite remains El Diablo’s Burrito.
Location: Huay Kaew road. From the north west corner of the moat, follow Huay Kaew road in the direction of the mountain. Pass Central Kad Suan Kaew shopping mall and when you reach the Shell petrol station, take the U-turn. It’s right after the turn. Parking allowed at the petrol station or you can park in the soi just before you reach Salsa Kitchen, so then cross from the road from the U-turn.
Open: every day for lunch and dinner
