A Pinch of Salt
You know a restaurant is going to be good if it’s located in a strip mall, has no atmosphere to speak of and yet always seems to be packed.
Sal y Limon on Kingsway is such a place. Serving up fresh, flavourful Mexican food, it’s a hole in the finest variety. Its pollo pibil, stuffed with marinated, slow-roasted chicken breast, isn’t your average burrito ($8.50). And their housemade horchata ($2.00), all sweet and cinnamon-y and served on ice, is easy to knock back on a summer’s day.
Like its namesake (salt and lemon), Sal y Limon makes our mouths water. —Kelsey Dundon
