Spicy & Tasty

Very nice Mexican restaurant in the heart of Penrith. Great options for Vegans.
We probably ordered way too much. Selection of cocktails.

Would go back again, but need to be in the mood for Mexican cuisine.

Pros: Fresh and tasty, Perfect level of spice , Large portions

Great vegan menu

Lots to choose from, separate menu and very friendly, helpful staff. Very generous portions so they boxed up the extra food we couldn’t finish.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Lots of options, Deserts available too

Great vegan menu, delicious food!

Visited here as a birthday treat with friends. The vegan menu was really great, lots of options to choose from including dessert. I ordered a burrito with jackfruit and chimichuri, with a side of potato wedges, and it was sooo yummy! I also ordered a garlic bread with vegan cheese which was delicious, and churros for dessert which were equally amazing. Will definitely come here again!

Pros: Great vegan menu, Vegan cheese available, Delicious food

Not terrible

I really like Mexican and so I came to Salsa. I couldn't have my first option for the burrito as they had no jackfruit and so I chose the vegetable fajita. When the ingredients came to the table, the cheese was sus. I did state I was vegan whilst ordering and so rather than ask the waiter (who may I add was friendly) I asked my friends if they know of any easy ways to tell vegan 'cheese' apart. They were not much help and so I tried a small amount. It was dairy unfortunately. Dessert was much better!

[Mexicana do a vegan block that melts pretty good]

Fab, fresh and tasty

Really tasty food and great to have plenty of options on a separate vegan menu.

Helpful staff who made the effort to point out that specific parts of our food were actually vegan (e.g. the butter for the jacket potato was a vegan butter)

Pros: Varied vegan starters and mains, Helpful staff

Solid Mexican Food

By solid, we don’t mean that it was unusually hard in consistency - we mean it was exactly what we were hoping for.
We both love Mexican food so we were really excited that they had an entire vegan menu for those of us who have pitched our tents on the moral high ground 😂.
As usual, we couldn’t decide on starters so we went for the sharing platter (minus the tequila shots because tequila makes my taste buds cry). It was all really tasty - the padron peppers were particularly good.
We then had burritos and fajitas for mains and we were not disappointed! There’s something so exciting about hearing the sizzle of the fajitas as they’re brought to the table and I’m pretty sure that Tom had food envy (not that he’d admit it). They both came with a side and we both went for chilli cheese wedges. It was a lot of food. A lot.
Still, I wanted to try vegan churros so we got some to take away.
Overall, we really enjoyed our Mexican food experience and if we lived in the area, we’d definitely be returning.

Plenty of vegan options

Had a lovely dinner here. Everything made vegan as requested. No idea what vegan cheese was used on the nachos, but worth a visit just for that! Lovely food and service!
