Family owned for a little more than two decades, El Palenque treats guests to a range of regional fare, all handmade in accordance with time-tested generational recipes. Fresh ingredients populate a dinner menu crammed with savory Central American fare, such as the traditional chicharron pupusa (spiced pork, $10) and the hearty tamal (a corn dish with olives, potato, bell peppers, carrots, garbanzos, and feta cheese, $10), as well as Mexican mandible pleasures such as the palenque salad (meat, rice, beans, lettuce, avocado, and pico de gallo, $10). Many dinner items make guest appearances on El Palenque's lunch menu, mingling with creative co-stars such as the cheese and loroco pupusa (corn tortilla stuffed heartily with cheese and Loroco, El Salvador's most beloved and devoured tropical flower, $7) and the crispy chimichanga (accented with ranchera salsa, avocado, and sour cream, $10). Pair any plate with a cold glass of horchata ($3), a crisp glass of chardonnay ($7), or a well-fermented mug of imported cerveza ($4), the Spanish word for fiesta.
Wake up to breakfast and weekend-brunch house specialties, including a homemade granola served with fruit and yogurt, milk, or soymilk ($6.50), or a fluffy rack of silver-dollar buttermilk pancakes ($4.50). The pesto scramble ($9) fries up a garden full of growables (zucchini, tomato, roasted red pepper, and onion) with parmesan for a decadently delicious vegetarian dish. Moderately priced, traditional tastes dominate the afternoon and evening menu like a black bear in a hot-dog-eating contest. Snag the Burger Di Carlo ($7, or $8 for a black-bean burger), the B.L.A.T (a B.L.T. plus avocado, $8.50), or the spinach salad ($9), among other options. Pair eats with liquid accompaniment in the form of beer, wine, cocktails, or a variety of non-alcoholic sips.
Visitors at Tortilleria Y Tienda De Leon can order tacos on housemade tortillas to eat in the store, or they can browse aisles of groceries to make authentic Mexican meals at home. Its display cases brim with “colorful Mexican sweet buns” available for carryout, according to OregonLive. In the grocery section, butchers cut fresh slabs of meat at the meat counter, and an assortment of fresh produce eliminates the need to make salad with leaves from a neighbor’s oak tree.
