Just awesome atmosphere. Food and drinks are flowing and the music is catchy. They have a live band on Friday and Saturdays and outdoor seating is available if you don't want to be close to the band - but in ear shot!

We had a fabuius night at La Salsa last week. The food is very impressive, very tasting and plenty of it. I had not been here for years. I remember going here about 6 years ago and it seems to have really taken off and the food is so much better than what I recall from all those years ago. I was having a chat to the manager and she was telling me how they have really focused on bringing awesome tasting and affordable food to their guests. The menu is extensive and so much to choose from, I was absolutely stuffed by the end of my meal. The portions are huge and the piping hot sizzling plates are a plenty. Definitely getting a group together and hitting this place on the weekend for some Live Music. Apparently there are different bands every Friday and Saturday so there will always be variety here.

La Salsa Kitchen & Bar at Dempsey Hill is such a great spot for a tasty value meal spiced with music, margaritas and wall art. I loved walking in from the crowded street straight into this Latin enclave. Of course my first port of call was to order a frozen margarita, a drink I look forward to when in a Latin bar. Sipping on my drink I found a feast for my eyes on the walls. Murals that had a splash of different colours and design. Margaritas at La Salsa Kitchen & Bar range in price from $19 to $30 and there are six varieties to choose from. If you prefer a red or white wine they cost about $15 by the glass. Browsing through the menu there is something for everyone here – meat lovers, seafood enthusiasts and vegetarians. I decided the Ceviche de Mariscos would be a good pair for my traditional lime margarita. Prawns and scallops marinated in lime juice with onions, tomatoes, cilantro and Mexican chilli, this had a delicious, light and spicy flavour to it. I loved the tangy taste which blended with the fresh seafood. A must try if you want to start with something piquant. Loving the not-so-overpowering spicy taste of Latin food I ventured courageously to the Jalapenos Rellenos. This vegetarian dish of deep-fried battered jalapenos stuffed with queso fresco and served with serrano cream sauce was so well textured. Crunchy on the outside and creamy soft on the inside with just the right amount of spice (for me) I found this a great accompaniment to my margarita. In case you are one of those who loves a sauce with everything you eat, there were four bottles of home-made sauces to choose from. Based on spice levels you prefer, tangy sharp, spicy sour, smokey BBQ and spicy habanero are available. Moving to some Mexican staples (for patrons who love that Mexican touch) the Langostinos al Adobo which is tiger prawns in adobo sauce arrived. This was a Fajitas house special - totally to die for! Huge prawns that were so fresh and well marinated with the adobo sauce akin to a sambal sauce in Singapore, this was served with four warm handmade tortillas and accompanying salsas. La Salsa attempts to bring traditional and contemporary together with proprietary blends of homemade seasonings which was strewn over a bed of sautéed onions and bell peppers. Munching through this delightful fajitas dish the piped in Latino music was playing at just the right volume, giving me a punchy, snappy, upbeat feeling that could turn any down mood into an up. La Salsa Kitchen & Bar has a live band entertaining crowds on Friday and Saturday nights plus happy hour house pours and beers all week long till 8 pm daily Beer priced at about $20++ for two pints or $50++ for a bucket of five beers - there are many deals to choose from at La Salsa Kitchen & Bar. The Pollo Asado Negro arrived. Chargrilled fresh hormone-free boneless chicken breast glazed with house special marinade, this was a huge portion made for two. In fact most dishes I had tried so far were very generous portions, so sharing plates would be the order of the day at La Salsa. Served with fire roasted vegetables and a house made spicy sauce I was glad I could savour this with a glass of Argentinian Arido Malbec. Smooth and light enough to be paired with meat I would highly recommend this combo. When you are at La Salsa Kitchen & Bar I guarantee you will find it hard to pick your choice of food - I did. There were so many wonderful pages of amazingly delicious varieties, I was like a child in a playground. The main meal of Costillas de Cerdo - oven roasted St. Louis pork ribs chargrilled and served with chipotle BBQ sauce was a callout on the menu. Splashed over a full page of the menu the image looked so appealing. How could I not have ordered it? For those who don’t really fancy spice in their meals this would be one for you. With the meat falling off the bone, the succulent, juicy marinade was evident. Total quality meal, one that will leave you feeling guilty to the max! While I had loads of vegetables as an accompaniment in every dish, I thought it time to fly the vegetarian flag. The Salteado Arroz Rojo, a classic Peruvian stir-fry dish with assorted vegetables served with rojo rice was tasty. The guilt-free version of a main meal if you ever need one! Full to the brim I was advised to keep some space for dessert. Some staples I will never tire of, one of them being churros. So simple but so satisfying, these flour dough sticks sprinkled with cinnamon sugar served with two dipping sauces of chocolate or butterscotch are just perfect for the end of a meal. I was so impressed with La Salsa Kitchen & Bar on every front. The ambience gave way to an upbeat and snazzy sensory-based experience. A perfect spot for private events too with just the right amount of table seating, high tables and a bar there is a space for every type of diner. The next time I wonder “where to next?” I know I will be thinking “La Salsa” for sure.
