For authentic Mexican food, Salvador's Bakery on Silverton Rd. near Lancaster hits the spot. This clean, friendly bakery and taqueria is decorated with brightly colored pinatas hanging from the ceiling and shelves filled with exotic Mexican pastries. They also have a deli counter where you can get fresh meats that you won't find at most grocery stores. For lunch, I ordered three carne asada tacos for $1.85 each and a can of Coca Cola. For some reason, Coke taste better in a can than it does from a fountain. The tacos come with just the corn tortilla and the meat. You have to add toppings from, maybe, the best salsa bar in all of Salem. There is a choice of about four or five different salsas with a range in spiciness. One of them is so hot, they told me that it was made with only one ingredient, peppers. With a big scoop of that salsa on one of my tacos, I wished that I'd ordered two cans of cola. Except for the meat being a bit fatty, the tacos were outstanding. The tortillas were fresh and soft, better than most of the sit down Mexican places in town. The tamales were also very good, stuffed with more meat than ones I've had in the past. It's a little adventurous to try a Mexican restaurant like Salvador's, but the workers speak English and are very welcoming. I will be back.
