LR Restaurant Review: Local Lime
This past weekend, I ventured out to West Little Rock to try out Local Lime. I hadn't been out there since they opened last year, and I'm not sure why I've stayed away. Their food is incredibly fresh and delicious. The owners also operate Big Orange and ZaZa's, and they really know how to deliver high quality food in a beautiful setting.
The menu is clearly marked with vegan and non-vegan items. This is a great feature, and it makes ordering really easy. We started with a trio of salsas, the tomatillo, mango and regular. The menu was a little misleading on this one, but I checked online, and their tomatillo is listed as vegan.
The salsas were really fantastic. They were light and airy and delicious. It was a great start to the dish. I ordered the vegan tacos, the beans and greens. They were really tasty. We had sides piled all over the table, but I ended up eating the black beans and pickled vegetables.
The tacos were topped with guacamole and shredded cabbage and were quite tasty. The pickled vegetables were by far my favorite. They were spicy and tart.
They have a house made ginger soda that was incredibly tasty!
I really hope they get more vegan items on their menu, but until then, I'll keep coming back for these tacos. They have a great looking citrus salad on the menu that I really want to try as well.
