THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Alameda Restaurant Review: Snuggled within the confines of a service-oriented shopping center, this outpost of Latin American and Mexican cooking draws lots of neighboring families. Open since late 99, the restaurant boasts a bright interior that suggests Hispanic architecture, with faux bricks outlining arched niches. One may choose between the Latin American or the Mexican side of the menu, but it would be foolish to pass up the Latin American dishes. Richly flavored seafood soup, slightly piquant, envelopes a tumble of tender seafood ranging from scallops to squid. The tender marinated pork loin in a light gravy with crisply fried yuca and salad is a substantial and tasty meal. The flan is a creamy, silky custard with the correctly caramelized top. The short wine list is fine, but only a few choices are available by the glass, making it nearly imperative to come with friends who can help savor a bottle of San Telmo Malbec, especially if you get the Argentine steak with chimichurri sauce.
