Beraca Restaurante Latino Restaurant Review

: Authentic Honduran cuisine is not found on every corner in New Orleans. But at Beraca, the kitchen dishes up baleadas that alone might warrant a trip out to the suburbs. It’s essentially a thick, warm flour tortilla folded in half to cradle a smear of fried red beans and sharp, crumbled cheese, gilded with a mellow, ivory-colored Honduran cream. Watch the culinary staff pull, roll and griddle-cook each tortilla to order. Whole baked fish is simple but filling and nicely seasoned. If the food tastes mysteriously Thai-like, that may be because the two cuisines share a penchant for certain spices. Neither dessert nor alcohol is served. Service is slow, but friendly. Pick up your order to go and enjoy it somewhere else.
