El Zarape

Today was a To Go sort of lunch. I was working and had to find a quick bite. This place has been here for about a year or so. They used to be located on John Young Parkway and 192. The place is much smaller now.

The inside is nice. I like the way the place is maintained. It’s a small place but they use the minimal space well.

Beautiful entry way in the dining room. Mexican, Salvadorian, Peruvian, and Honduran food is served here. Although, the young lady helping me out today said they are looking for a Peruvian chef because the one they had is no longer there.

Salvadorian treats and sweets. These are typical treats found in their country. They all looked so good. I will have to come back and try some. Now on to the FOOD!!!!

Steak Tacos. Made my favorite way, cilantro and onions. The tacos were just okay. Not superb. They lacked a bit of flavor. The meat needed a bit more.

Pollo Guisado (Stewed Chicken) with red beans and white rice. The chicken was very good. It would fall off the bone. Lots of flavor. The white rice was perfect for me. Most places make it salty. This was just right. The beans were seasoned well. Overall, a very good lunch special which included a drink.

Nice place. I will want to go back and have a sit down lunch or dinner there.

  1. I stopped at this restaurant tonight. The fact that there were no cars in the parking lot should have been taken as a warning. As my date and i were the only patrons, you would have thought that we would have received better service. This was not the case. We waited more than 30 minutes for our food to be delivered, and once it arrived, the chicken in my fajitas was rancid. I called the manager over, told him, and begged him to take a whiff of my food. He explained that it must be the seasonings they use and he walked off. I called him and handed him the plate. His respone: “you ordered it, you’re paying for it. ” He thought that it was a threat when he stated he called the police. We told him we would wait. After waiting 15 minutes, we asked when he expected them to arrive. He said 45 minutes. We left.

    • Are you serious?? That is horrible. Please be sure to place that comment on Urbanspoon and Yelp so the tourist and locals are aware. I did not have that experience, but you should not have been treated that way. Thanks for the info.
