Salsa Dubai Reviews
Great Mexican food Nov 18, 2010
After a day by the pool I went to the Dubai Marina for dinner. Along the Marina Walk there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. I had already tried Japanese, Lebanese, Persian and Iranian, so my choice tonight was Mexican. A bit unusual in Dubai, but why not! I had passed Salsa Dubai several times and it always seemed busy. A good thing in my book.
Salsa Dubai is located right on the Marina Walk and has a nice view of the yachtes. The restaurant serves something between texmex and real Mexican food. The real thing you only get in Mexico in my opinion. They offer an extensive menu including nachos, fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, chimichangas, bocadillos and a variety of vegetarian choices. And Keith, they serve both chicken and beef burgers, so you will be fine there! On the drink menu there were soft drinks, fruit juices, milk shakes and cocktails (without alcohol).
I ordered a chicken enchilada and I must admit that it was the best enchilada I have eaten outside Mexico.
The outside terrace is nice for evening dinning, but the colourful woven tablecloths don´t succeed in creating the Mexican atmosphere. The inside dinning area looked more like something from a food court in a Mall. It helps a little bit with the Mexican music though (musica ranchera).
All of the locals seemed to smoke shisha, which looked a bit out of place in a Mexican restaurant, but I guess they have to adapt to local habits to attract customers! For 32 Dhs you can get one too. Choose from mint, watermelon, apple, double apple, melon, strawberry, lemon, rose, grapes, salloom, orange and cherry.
Service was great. The waiters were friendly, courteous and very efficient. And they gave you just the right amount of attention.
If you like good Mexican food and don´t mind the lack of Mexican atmosphere Salsa Dubai is the place to eat! If you are too lazy to go out, they also offer free home delivery!
