Taco Tuesday Everyday in Surrey

We all love Taco Tuesday, but let’s get real, every day is a good day for Mexican food. And though we love them, why limit yourself to tacos? Surrey’s Mexican restaurants are serving cuisine so authentic that it tastes home-made. From classic carnitas tacos and enchiladas to fragrant sopas (soup),  Pollo Mole (chicken in a rich chile and chocolate sauce) and Chile Relleno (a stuffed and battered pepper) the menus pay homage to different regions of Mexico, but they all have one thing in common … they’re crazy delicious!

Tacos and tequila?  Sign us up! Tucked away in the shadow (literally, it’s downstairs) of the Old Surrey Restaurant, Salsa & Guacamole started in 2020 just after the Covid-19 pandemic started strictly as an online business selling homemade salsa and guacamole. Since then, it has evolved into a delightful dine-in restaurant with a menu packed full of Mexican recipes that are a homage to Paula’s (the owner) memories of her mother and grandmother’s cooking.  Order the carnitas tacos, pair it with a beautifully crafted tequila cocktail and wrap it all up with a crispy, sugary churro!
