Meet the owner

When talking to Sal Y Limon co-owner Carolina Rivera, the word that comes up most often is “family.” And rightfully so; restaurants – and Mexican restaurants in particular – are in her blood, part of a family tradition that goes back to her formative years in Manzanillo.

“I grew up with my older sister and her husband, and they had a Mexican restaurant,” she recalls. “And I used to work with them all through high school and university. I learned all these recipes, and it was part of my growing up. And when I met [co-owner Adriana Basantes], her husband was working in a Mexican restaurant, and I found out that he had a passion for it, too. He wanted to open up his own place. And when I found that out, it just clicked.”

So, in the spring of 2012, Carolina, her husband Sebastien Jutras, alongside Adriana and her husband Jose (Pepe) Cedeno, decided to band together, using some of those same family recipes – further developed by Carolina and Pepe – to bring an authentic taste of Mexico to the Fraser/Kingsway neighbourhood. “We were talking, and it just happened,” she recalls. “It felt like the right thing to do with the right people at the right time.”

    That's a wrap! Great burrito bars in Vancouver

    That's a wrap! Great burrito bars in Vancouver

    Sal Y Limon specializes in authentic Mexican fast-food staples, like tacos, tortas and, of course, delicious burritos – which, they’ll admit, is more of a regional dish, if not an American invention altogether. But burritos are certainly Mexican-inspired and scrumptious nonetheless, especially when made with fresh, authentic ingredients and homemade salsa. You’ll love the atmosphere in this Fraserhood location, with its music and vibrant art. It only adds to the lovely flavours of Sal Y Limon’s great cuisine.

    Vancouver's tastiest hidden gem restaurants

    Vancouver's tastiest hidden gem restaurants

    While Fraserhood’s Sal y Limon serves up terrific tacos, burritos and other Mexican fare, the true gem on the menu is the huarache flatbread. A traditional dish from Mexico City, the huarache is rather difficult to find in most local Mexican joints – but at Sal y Limon, you’ll hit the jackpot. Made of fried corn masa, these oblong-shaped flatbreads are hands down a must order. Take your pick between toppings like slow-roasted spiced pork or chorizo with egg, and be sure to order a side of the oh-so-addictive chipotle aioli to drizzle on top.

    In the city’s recent explosion of more-than-decent Mexican food, the fight for authenticity may be over. Housed in a small strip mall at the corner of Fraser and Kingsway, brightly lit and always busy Sal y Limon packs a flavour punch with its house-made salsas, mouth-watering tacos and other truly Mexican delicacies. Recently expanded to manage the constant line-up of locals in the know, you can bet this gem won’t remain hidden for long.
