Salsa's Fresh Mex Grill @ Garden City Shopping Mall, Brisbane



Whether you are in Australia or Malaysia, you would have heard of Boost Juice. I remember my university days, i would substitute lunch with a Boost Juice and come to think about it, i need to start doing that to lose some weight before the food binging begins end of March.


How many though would know that the founder of Boost Juice also founded Salsa's, a fast food version of Mexican food that is prepared upon order?


Well now you know.

For AUD 10, you will get 2 Beef Tacos and this addictive french, i mean mexican fries. The tacos is crunchy and once you bite into the warm and juicy filling, it is another layer of texture. The fries are tossed with probably is a mix of paprika and salt reminds me of the fries we used to get at the cafe opposite our school. For those who remember Buddy Cafe opposite Garden International School, the fries and flavoring were all in a paper bag and you would shake it till everything mixes evenly. What good old memories.


For a quick fix meal, Salsa's is another good option amongst the stalls of kebabs, fried chicken, salads, japanese and chinese stalls.


Lets just hope that it will be as famous as the sister Boost Juice.


Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. If you had AUD10 for lunch, it is a good option, although not as filling as a huge japanese curry chicken rice of course.

McD's had those mcshaker fries too, once upon a time, rite. Though I think their seasoning was just 99percent MSG =)

babekl: well they will have to get the pricing right, i reckon if they can sell a set below rm20, they should b ok, since carls junior sets are around that price isnt?
