The first Salvadoran restaurant along the Broadway strip to openly court a gringo clientele, this white-tablecloth spot is more inviting and finished looking than its ramshackle Spanish Town precursors. The food served is very similar, though--groaning servings of plain, simple, modestly spiced food. The value-priced combination platters are artless concoctions of dense papusas, endless refried beans, yummy tamales, fried plantains, and marinated beef. Seafood selections from the mesquite grill help to raise up the fare. Restaurante El Trovador is the place to take newcomers to try this starchy, satisfying cuisine.
Taking over a Greektown space formerly devoted to non-Hellenic cuisines (it was formerly a chicken-and-waffle joint), Habanero serves insanely huge portions of Tex-Mex and Central American food at laughably low prices. Appetizers go over very, very well. Try the tamal de elote con crema, a warm sweet-corn tamale served with chilled crema, a fatty Mexican cream; or the yuca con chiccharones, crackling good cubes of tasty pork mixed with starchy slices of casava. Fresh-sauced Tex-Mex entrées succeed better than Salvadoran fare, which tends to sit there on the plate not doing much. For the adventurous, there's tongue, tripe, and cow's feet. Frugal, hungry patrons are wanted.
Takeout and restaurant serving such Central American staples as tamales, papusas, tacos, baleadas and tortas.
