Introduction A PowerPoint Presentation created by Timothy, Esmeralda, Justin and Rebeca We will be discussing two restaurants that weve visited over the past few weeks for our Project Space Assignment
Quick Statements Identity struggles are visible at the restaurants at El Pueblo Its very important when Central Americans go through the effort of creating their own space that it stays Central American. To show Pride in their Culture. El Katracho, a Honduran Restaurant succeeds in this. In Mi Pueblos case, it felt too Mexican, certainly not what we were expecting when entering the restaurant. (The adds stated they were Mexican and El Salvadorean) Rebecca states it is not good for a restaurant to do this, or for those wanting to learn about Central American Culture. It tricks them in a way.
El Katracho The Authentic Honduran Restaurant Welcome to El Katracho Restaurant, where you enjoy Authentic Honduran foodLike being at Home in Honduras
El Katrachos Specialty!
Baleadas are one of the most popular Honduran foods, but what are they? Baleadas are to Honduras, what burritos are to Mexico Baleadas are one of the most well known Honduran fast foods and are extremely popular. A basic Baleadas contains thick flour tortilla, folded in half to contain beans and cheese, grated queso duro, and a sauce very similar to sour cream called mantequilla. Baleadas are typically eaten during breakfast or dinner.
Baleadas does not equal Burrito just to clarify
What makes El Katracho stand out? El Katracho stands strongly and proudly for their Honduran Restaurant. They are not afraid to show there flag proudly and with grace. El Katracho gets especially popular doing soccer, or football, well futball when Hondurans are playing! They are a bit like this in those cases…
BAM Honduran Pride!
Why should you go here? Nonetheless, El Katracho succeeds in providing that sense of home feeling for Hondurans looking for that. The service is slow but worth it, the food is definitely on par. The restaurant is a nice size and is very family orientated. They have a karaoke bar for those times you just want to sing! (on Thursdays and weekends). The workers are very welcoming and they look like they truly enjoy being there. It doesnt get any better then El Katracho. Its traditional, food is great, and pricing of food is fairly cheep.
Here are some pictures inside El Katracho

Mariscos Mi Pueblo
Think Mexico and your senses will be aroused by the exotic colors, exciting music and the aroma of exotic food. If you are looking to relish authentic Mexican food such as tacos, enchiladas, tamales, nachos and steak, walk in to Restaurant Mi Pueblo, a family owned restaurant for food, drinks, music and fun. You can not only enjoy warm tortilla chips served with salsa topped with onions but also enjoy margaritas if you are in mood for a drink. The restaurant has been satisfying the palettes of hundreds of customers by serving mouthwatering traditional Mexican food made with fresh ingredients for the past nineteen years. The restaurant menu serves seafood, Salvadorian food, and Mexican food.
Appearance Homey Family owned and Operated Not a traditional feel
Appearance Salvadoran Maps and Articles Paintings and Photographs -Seafood -Ships -Waves
My Experience Food and Service was Decent Workers were more concerned with their sop operas (novelas) Unique but not Traditional The list of food on the restaurants menu that would be considered Salvadorian was roughly the size of a pinky. Mi Pueblo is a fusion of Mexican and Salvadorian food, mainly Mexican. Language barrier (menu, workers)
Overall Since many Central Americans work hard in maintaining and promoting Central American culture, they need to stick to what they know -Family recipes no culture clash Decorated accordingly for customers to get a feel of the places unique atmosphere and vibe The project helped me learn the importance of keeping a cultures space unique and special, if they become westernized or americanized a whole culture could be extinct. A bit exaggerated I know but it could happen!
