This small, no-frills spot is a local favorite that serves Latin American dishes and a whole lot more. Order at the counter before finding a table, which the restaurant packs in elbow-to-elbow. Try not to be overwhelmed by the options. The choices start with chile rellenos and empanadas, tamales wrapped with banana leaves, excellent stuffed pupusas from El Salvador, and an equally tasty green chile beef stew. Then it's on to ever-changing specials like smoked salmon eggs Benedict, organic chicken livers with caramelized onions and jalapenos, or the house's heirloom green tomato pie with raisins. Burger options range from beef and buffalo to lamb and brown rice-nut patties, and there's a long list of wine, beer, and sake cocktails too. Try a watermelon juice if you're teetotaling.
