El Tamarindo Café
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
El Tamarindo's menu is all over the map - a map of the American continents, anyway. The proprietors have come up with a brilliant strategy to attract every Latin-food-loving soul within 100 miles: They'll dish up your meat and veg in the style of Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, El Salvador, Honduras, or Mexico. Just pick your pleasure. An appetizer mixed plate runs the gamut - Salvadoran pupusas filled with loroco buds, or beans and cheese, come with a tart slaw called curdito; a Honduran chicken-filled baleada is for dipping in a sweetish sour cream. The kitchen makes its own salty fresh cheese, and tortillas are cooked to order. Grilled skirt steak or a palomilla can be had for $10.99 or under, a great bargain, as is the fried fish of the day or sautéed shrimp. White tablecloths and charming, shy service make this setting muy relaxing.

My favorite is the churrasco. Mom loves the tilapia. Mmmmmm. Excellent food at this restaurant.

Don't miss out on ordering the ceviche. It's not on the menu, but it's top notch!
Churrasco (skirt steak) is amazingly good. My wife had it with maduros (sweet plantains) that were also top notch.
