La Palapa Hondureña: Hole-in-the-Wall Serves Tasty Honduran

On the outside, La Palapa Hondureña (formerly known as Adelita's Café) is anything but memorable. Surrounded by louder venues such as a vapor shop and a Papa John's, the restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows that are plastered with karaoke posters and the emblematic palapa, an open-sided dwelling with a thatched roof. The walls are in need of a paint job, and the aluminum patio furniture could singe the thickest of skins. Decor is not their strong suit, but thou shalt not judge a restaurant by its façade.
