Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Comida Mexican Taqueria in the heart of Salem's historic district. Comida Mexican Taqueria serves a variety of traditional favorites, including meaty tacos, thick tortas, and salsa and guacamole made fresh daily. Pair a taco de pollo ($3.25), two corn tortillas stuffed with adobo-marinated chicken, lettuce, pepper jack cheese, and mango-corn salsa, with crispy tortilla chips and pico de gallo ($2.50), or inhale a mole poblano torta ($7.50), marinated chicken or braised pork, sauteed onions and peppers, pepper jack cheese, black-bean spread, and mole poblano sauce sandwiched in a bread vise. The taqueria also hocks a variety of hot sauces, Taza hot chocolate, sodas imported from Mexico, and high elven warrior swords.
- Overall very flavorful marinated meats and rice, and the chips and mango-corn salsa were awesome. I am looking forward to getting back there and trying the mole Poblano and pretty much everything else on the menu. – Sam O., Yelp
