READERS' PICK: Vegetarianism is cool, it's conscientious, and inarguably healthful. Alas, it's not all that Mexican. Still, La Salsa has the hook-up, with a couple of wonderfully spicy yet strictly vegetarian items to allow you to have the best of both worlds. The vegetarian taco is a delight, with black beans folded into a crispy taco shell (no lard!), topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, cheese and the house salsa. We suppose vegans could ask to hold the cheese (and there's probably a joke in there somewhere). The bean burrito is a fan favorite, brimming with good stuff that will leave you full, yet still socially conscious.
