La Unica, Charlotte. My New Salsa Addiction.

HungryGrayCat | Oct 21, 2008 10:08 AM

My name is HungryGrayCat and I am an addict.

I've been hitting La Unica on Central pretty regularly for the past couple of months. About every 2 weeks I get an insatiable urge for their salsa; the red and the green from the squeeze bottles -- the tomato salsa in the “carafe” is pretty pedestrian.

I’ve tried a few things off the menu but keep coming back to the carne asada tacos with cilantro and onions. Then I douse them with the salsas. The meat is generally very good, flavorful and moist. I wish the tortillas were house made but at least they’re very fresh.

Any other recommendations for good tacos? And especially good chile and/or cilantro-based salsas? Extra points for being relatively close to my job (near the Amtrak station on North Tryon.)
