While it’s definitely one of the hotspots in Greater Vancouver, Yaletown does get labelled as being a bit pretentious by some. What’s to blame? Many may cite the per capita number of cosmetic surgery clinics, beauty spas/salons, and boutique pet stores that sell over $500 bedazzled dog collars. But there is so much more to the community that what some see on the surface. There are amazing fun-loving characters (you?) in our district and commercial businesses to cater to them, and when it comes to casual dining, our restaurant delivers accordingly. Let’s find out how and why.

Sports bars certainly have their place in downtown Vancouver. But where do you go when you want to enjoy a casual (yet delicious) dining experience with the game on in the background? That’s a question that many ask, those of you with a family in tow, on a casual date (whatever you do, don’t watch the game on a first date!), or those who simply don’t want to deal with the screams of rapid sports fans in an elbow-room only establishment. It’s hard to find that middle ground downtown, but it does exist, right around the corner of Pacific and Davie at Salsa & Agave.
Let’s find out why our Yaletown restaurant has become a popular destination for sports fans who want great food and drinks without missing the scores and highlights of the day’s (or night’s) game schedule.

Our daily lunch, dinner, and drink specials keep the crowds coming in every single day of the week. But when the weekends hit we like to reward patrons with something special, even if it means our kitchen has to work even harder than normal (we treat them well, we promise!).
Our weekend menu includes three extra special items that we feel deserve a spotlight of their own, which is why we’re using this week’s blog to deliver accordingly. These dishes are more than the result of a recipe, they are steeped in history, culture, and hold significance for many households, a significance that spans from Mexico and has made its way up here to the Pacific Northwest. Curious? Let’s take a look at three dishes that will provide you with a unique dining experience on your next (and many more to come) Vancouver weekend.

Are you sick of hearing everyone talking about pumpkin spice lattes? Does the phrase “back to school” still strike fear and loathing in your soul? Are you baffled by people who get excited about wearing scarves, cardigans, and knee-high boots once again? Then this article (and our restaurant) is for you.
It’s hard to let go of the summer in Vancouver. Nothing brings the city to life quite like warm temperatures, sunny skies, and PNE lines (ok, maybe not the latter). Well, who says you have to let it go? Instead, you can find solace from the impending autumn and winter by becoming a regular at one place that makes summer an all year affair – Salsa & Agave.

“Unique” is a tricky word in the restaurant world. It walks a fine line that often crosses over in to gimmicky territory. Those gimmicks may garner initial interest, but the novelty wears off quick, and often results in a lack of repeat business and nonexistent loyal customer base.
What are those gimmicks? There are many. They range from purposely rude servers (a concept made famous by the likes of Wiener’s Circle in Chicago) to a slew of other concepts that make popular lists of worst restaurant gimmicks around (some themes don’t veer too far from those attempted in our very own fine city).
But unique on the other hand, well, that’s a different story. When done right, it enhances the entire dining experience. And it doesn’t need to be wacky, wild, or out of this world to be deemed unique. Heck, even “exceptional service” can be considered unique in today’s rush-them-in and rush-them-out food service industry.
Salsa & Agave may not shock and awe anyone when it comes to dining out in Vancouver, and that’s a great thing. Instead, we provide a truly distinctive dining experience for locals and visitors alike. Below, is an accounting of what sets us apart from the norm.
