Founded by Catalina Duran and Lucia Vogel, this City Pages Best of the Twin Cities Award-winning restaurant for Best Central/South American Restaurant focuses on a tight menu of Honduran cuisine and Mexican staples. Favorite eats include the succulent, fall-of-the-bone Mixiotes (barbecued chicken in a Mexican stew), the Pastelillos de Carne and the Casmient, a tasty mixture of rice, beans, cilantro, and chicken, served ringed with orange slices with a side of fresh, hot tortillas. But there are also your favorite standbys like great renditions of chiles rellenos, enchiladas verdes, freshly fried chips and a trio of homemade salsas, and an incredible horchata spiced with jicama and tamarind.
