Since Jeff's office was going to be moving soon, we decided to meet halfway at Yaletown during our lunch break like last time; this time we met up at Salsa & Agave.
Jeff had a variety of tacos (4 for $9), including what I think are: pollo (chicken), caritas (soft pork), chorizo (Mexican sausage), and carne asada (grilled beef). Although they seemed quite generous with the toppings, he noted that he enjoyed La Taqueria more.
I had the gringa ($9) 13" flour tortilla smothered with melted cheese and pastor, avocado sauce on the side. I liked the generous amount of cheese, as well as the bits of pineapple along with the soft pork and red sauce. It was quite filling as well and I finished three of the four pieces.
Since it was a cold day, I also ordered a small azeteca soup ($4), a tortilla soup, chipotle pepper, diced avocados, cheese and house sour cream. It was my first time having this soup, and I thought it was alright. It wasn't spicy but had a warm sensation to it. I guess it was alright.
It was a filling meal at Salsa and Agave, but I didn't particularly enjoy it. The service was nearly non-existent since it was quite busy and they seemed desperately understaffed.
