Good salsa & chips in San Gabriel Valley?
Seeking good salsa & chips from restaurants and Mexican markets in the SGV. Prefer chunky/salsa fresca type salsas. Thanks in advance!
I always love the table salsa and chips at Mijares in Pasadena. They have two locations - one on Pasadena Avenue between Californina and Del Mar and another on Washington and Allen. They have the best table salsa I have ever had at a mexican rest.
El Toreo Cafe on Fair Oaks (just south of Colorado Blvd.) in Old Town Pasadena, and next to the Cheesecake Factory.
Pacos in Arcadia (Foothills and 2nd) has pretty good chips and salsa. The salsa is chunky but if you like some heat to it then it may not be your favorite. Peppers near the Santa Anita racetrack's salsa is pretty chunky too and has some heat to it. Just to warn you I'm a bit weaksauce when it comes to spicy things so what I think is spicy may not apply to you. :)
They have homemade chips and fresh salsa. Be warned, their "hot" salsa packs some real heat.
Los Toros Meat Market
8210 Garvey Ave (and San Gabriel Blvd)
