Forget the fact that true Latin American meals are still a rarity in Portland. Tu Casa Salvadorena Restaurant is as authentic as you can get – way north of the border or otherwise – for this type of spicy, ethnic cuisine. This modest eatery offers up some of the best of Salvadoran food for both lunch and dinner. Of special note here are Tu Casa's delicious version of the pupusa, a traditional dish of thick corn tortillas filled with cooked pork, refried beans and cheese and served with fermented cabbage slaw that contains red chilies and vinegar. Think burritos but with a delectable Salvadoran twist. Other highlights include Enchiladas Salvadorena featuring two crispy, fried tostadas covered with avocado, cheese, cabbage and meat; and The Mountaineer's Plate – a meat-eater's delight with flank steak, avocado, fried plantains, fried egg, rice and beans. Prices are very reasonable (the highest price item is about $12.00) and the service is fast and courteous. It truly makes for a lunch worth remembering.
