Fresh and Healthy Food at Salud Super Food

After a few days of not eating the healthiest, my sister and I wanted something fresh and light for lunch. Earlier in the week we walked past Salud Super Food, a small restaurant on Olas Altas, and I pointed out that everyone raves about this place yet I have never been. We checked out the menu and decided this would be perfect for a healthy light lunch.

The place is small with indoor and outdoor seating. It feels like a cafe of sorts and has many smoothies, vegetarian and meat options. The ingredients are high quality and sourced from local purveyors which I didn’t know until I was checking out their website. How very cool and no wonder this small venue is such a success!

Inside Salud you order at the counter. There is seating inside or out.

Both Holly and I decided on the veggie burgers with a side salad. Holly also had a green tea drink but I opted for some aqua mineral. We almost bought a cookie too but decided against it. Next time we said.

A delicious veggie burger and simple side salad. Salud has a farm to table approach, finding ingredients from local purveyors.

The burgers were delicious as was the salad. The food was really tasty, definitely a hit with us. The prices were reasonable too I found. We sat on the outdoor patio and was able to people watch which was nice.

Unfortunately Salud was closed Easter Sunday, our last day in Puerto Vallarta so we weren’t able to have another meal there. But I don’t think Salud is going anywhere soon so I will be going back next visit!

If you are wanting a big, fat, delicious burger and crisp french fries then look no further than Derby City Burgers. This small restaurant, located in Old Town right on Olas Altas, serves up the best burgers in town.

We had been wanting to go for a while and finally on our last visit we did it. In fact, we made it a point to go and planned our entire evening around this small and popular dining spot. So on our last night in Puerto Vallarta instead of going for fine dining at La Palapa, we headed on down to Derby Burger where we ordered a cerveza, burger and fries and watched the crowds go by. The owner was there too so we had a good chat with him as well. There is seating inside but I recommend sitting outside on the patio as it’s cooler and more interactive with passersby.

Although the burgers are the star of the show, there are also salads which I have seen pictures of and they too are spectacular.
