Never buy salsa from the grocery store again...

Lee | Apr 14, 2006 05:19 PM

I just wanted to pass a tip that has been working for me. I live near La Mexicana restaurant on Bathurst (average in terms of quality). So now, instead of buying salsa at the grocery store, I run in there and buy salsa fresh for about the same price or less than at the store (sometimes I also buy tortilla chips that are fresh there too - beats the hell out of Tostitos, etc).

1) the salsa (and chips) is fresh and tastes great
2) gone are the days of having 3 open salsa jars in my fridge for a year!
3) healthier - no preservatives

WARNING: This can become addictive, so I tend to do this only on nights when I make burritos (I copy Burrito Boyz and my girlfriend says mine are better!)

The only question I have for you all is WHERE CAN I GET THE BEST FRESH TAKEOUT SALSA IN THE CITY??? I do like Lonestar Cafe's (but only the one in Richmond Hill - all other locations of this place do not pass the test - in every way...)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
