Some good things to eat in South Delta: Mexican-inspired edition
When your tummy is grumbling there are plenty of places to satisfy your hunger in South Delta and listing them all would be too onerous for one magazine to handle. Which is why we’ve begun a new segment called Some good things to Eat, highlighting a few attractive options to try each month.
During this shivering month of June (yikes!) we’ve opted to go to the sunny south, past two border crossings, into the far-flung cuisine of Mexico. It may be hard to believe but there are several places in Ladner and Tsawwassen to get your salsa salivation on. Read on to find out where.
Turkey Taco Salad at the Dancing Pig in Ladner
Let’s talk turkey about this salad
One of the most popular choices on the menu is house smoked sliced turkey strips served on top of a crunchy salad filled with a Baja lime crema, fresh cut salsa and avocado all filled to overflowing inside a fried crispy tortilla shell boat. Pack an extra sized appetite for this one. The Dancing Pig Eatery & Taphouse is located in the heart of historic Ladner.
