Lime, in Larimer Square, is a Mexican cantina that serves a ton of great vegetarian options. I ordered the appetizer portion of their sweet corn tamale plate, which came with a pool of sour cream and a little dish of green chile. I thought the tamales were even better spooned with Lime’s salsa, which is riddled with garlic, onions and a nice level of medium heat. One of my sister’s enjoyed the Black Bean Soup, a smooth and deep vegetarian puree with chunks of black beans. I adore Lime’s tortilla chips, fresh and spicy from the deep fryer, with sprinkles of salt and chili powder. They’re perfect. The problem with perfect is that I chomped easily through my share of two baskets, loaded with plenty of salsa. I hadn’t been to Lime in over a year, and I noticed that their menu held many more veggie options than previously. They even have veggie fajitas with squash and zucchini. I wish I had been hungry enough to order a full plate. Next time. . . .
