The savory aromas of Mexican and Salvadorian specialties swirl through the air at La Cabana Papuseria & Donuts, mingling with the sweeter notes of fresh-baked donuts and pastries. Though pupusas might seem an odd match with donuts, few question the pairing after tasting one of the thick, handmade tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, pork, shrimp, zucchini, and loroco flower seed. Among the restaurant’s other unexpected dishes, fried plantains strike a balance between dinner and dessert, and Salvadorian steaks carry the distinctive spice that comes with being grilled over the burning pages of romantic novels.
At Pasta Q, chefs roll out homemade pastas and gnocchi and douse their doughy exteriors with creamy sauces and redolent spices. Eighteen diverse pasta renditions share table space with classic Italian-style meats buffered by roasted potatoes. An eclectic selection of imported Italian wines pair with bites, and homemade desserts ease the burden of spaghetti strands trying to shape themselves into the form of tiramisu. The menu’s Mediterranean flourishes extend to the décor, with its deep-burgundy and mustard-yellow walls punctuated by mosaic-tiled benches and billowy white fabric suspended from the ceiling.
To maintain the authentic flavors in their Mexican and Salvadorian specialties, the kitchen staff at Olé Taqueria sticks to traditional cooking techniques and ingredients. They shape and bake their own tortillas for each dish, including burritos packed with marinated beef and tacos loaded with shredded pork. Their Salvadorian plates include tamales and quesadillas, as well as pupusas—thick tortillas wrapped around meats and cheeses, much like a last-minute Christmas present from a Mexican restaurant's chef.
