Location Description:

Honduran cuisine is far from sophisticated, but the homey renditions at this café/market are a strong reminder that sometimes the simplest eating is the most satisfying. Numerous generically Latin American items -- like the ever-present churrasco -- are available, but much of the menu is a Honduras Greatest Hits list for curious foodies. Must-haves include baleadas, thick homemade flour tortillas filled with full-flavor refried beans plus two cheeses and topped with a healthy heap of shredded cabbage salad and fresh chimol salsa; and sopa de caracol, a coconut milk-enriched seafood soup packed with shrimp, conch, fish, and shell-on crab. Admittedly La Palapa's exterior is a bit forbidding, but the two rooms inside have the friendly, festive feel of a well-loved neighborhood hangout, and the hours (early morning to late night, daily) as well as the prices are user-friendly; spending more than 10 bucks per person would be a struggle. (Formerly Adelita's Café)
