Yaletown is a bit of a juxtaposition. On one side, it has one of the most fit populations in Vancouver. There are boutique gyms, spinning classes, and fitness and yoga studios on every corner. On the other side of the coin, you have restaurant after restaurant and cafe after cafe, all of them tempting your tastebuds.
When it comes to sticking to your new year resolutions to eat healthier, it can be a challenge in this neck of the woods. That being said, you don’t want to deny yourself a day and/or night out in Yaletown. Dining out is a massive part of the social culture here in the city.
Salsa & Agave knows all of the above. That is why our kitchen has prepared a menu that provides the atmosphere and delectable menu you’re looking for, while offering a selection of healthy Mexican dishes that won’t break your new year resolve.
Great Mexican Food in Yaletown Vancouver that Won’t Make You Feel Guilty About Cheating on Your Diet
Salsa & Agave keeps things simple on our salad menu selection. No need to complicate things when you serve two of the freshest salads in Vancouver. Our Agave Salad is locally sourced, which means that you get an exquisite potpourri of fresh crisp lettuce, tomato, carrots, peppers, cucumber, spring mix and feta cheese. And no need to hold the feta! This cheese is made with sheep’s or goat’s milk (which have cleaner diets than cows), both of which supply key vitamins and minerals such as calcium (140 milligrams per ounce), vitamin B12, iron, folate and vitamin D. Our Caesar Salad is dressed to balance the creamy texture you love, without the excess. Add chicken to either to add a healthy dose of protein to your appetizer or meal.
Many of you are eating more vegetables this year, or have converted to vegetarianism all the way. Kudos to either! Salsa & Agave is proud to offer up the best Vegetarian Quesadilla in Vancouver. This dish was well-planned to consider your nutritional needs. Made with a mix of sautéeed green and red peppers (high in vitamin A, C and B6), onions (high in vitamin C and antioxidants), mushrooms (high in fibre), and cheese (or without, for vegans).
A burrito can be healthy, especially here at Salsa & Agave. Our Agave Burrito is filled with roasted chicken (clean protein), rice, feta cheese and avocado which is now known as a superfood thanks to its high concentration of pantothenic acid, dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin C and monounsaturated fat (the good fat!). The Agave Burrito comes with spicy morita sauce, on the side, so you can decide.
Mole Poblano con Pollo
For some of you, that new year resolution is all about protein. Hunting down a hearty chicken breast to build that lean muscle mass without sacrificing taste can be tough. But here at Salsa & Agave, you can have the best of both worlds! Our Mole Poblano con Pollo is for those with a healthy appetite for lean chicken breast.
The name says it all. There’s nothing quite like a Vegetarian Wrap to start the afternoon (and rest of the day) off right. Filling yet healthy, this wrap is jam packed with fresh locally sources vegetables and cheese (optional). This handheld beauty is a favorite for many Yaletown residents looking for a post-workout pick-me-up with a bottled water in tow.
