Beto's Comida Latina Restaurant Review

: The empanadas that are the base of Beto’s fame continue to please aficionados --- in any of the beef and chile, calabacita con puerco, or vegetarian incarnations. And the fish tacos with cilantro-specked coleslaw and poblano sauce aren’t far behind. A Peruvian-style ceviche has made an appearance on the menu --- a document now sprinkled with “As-seen-on…” references as the result of a visit from TV’s Guy Fieri. The black bean soup and pozole are nevertheless still stalwarts, and the quesadillas, built on hand-made corn tortillas, remain the real thing, whether filled with chicken and tomatillo or “puro queso.” Beto’s is also one of the few restaurants in town for yucca fries, a Latin staple. And its backyard is a perfect place to taste the tropics on a balmy evening --- mojito or margarita in hand. Strawberry-rhubarb may not seem south-of-the-border, but it’s a surprisingly successful filling for one of Beto’s dessert empanadas, and a chocolate version is available, too.
