A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of visiting Salt Spring Island! I didn’t anticipate to be food blogging again so there aren’t many photos of the other places I ate at. I’ll just briefly mention them at the end.
After a long journey from the mainland to here we were famished and very hot from the unanticipated summer weather. During our drive we spotted El Loco Taco, a small food truck situated in the downtown center with a seating area and some much appreciated umbrellas for shade.
I ordered the pollo asada (chicken) and mahi mahi beer battered fish taco. Overall the taco was solid but was missing something special. The first bite of the chicken was great, but the consecutive bites afterwards were not brilliant and a bit monotone. Some of the vegetables in the mahi fish taco were too sour and overpowered everything else. It’s also quite possible that the tacos at La Taqueria have ruined my taco palate as they have the best tacos I’ve ever tasted. Who knows.
During our visit we also had food at the Tree House Cafe and Salt Spring Gelato. Those two places were absolutely delicious, highly recommended if you visit Salt Spring! Tree House Cafe also has a giant tree in the middle of the cafe so how cool is that.
Service: 3.8/5 Person at the truck was friendly, food took a little while to get here though. I was also very hungry at the time to be fair.
Taste: 3/5 Solid taco to satisfy your hunger but could be better.
Price: $ ($4 a taco)
