Honduras Maya (Park Slope) report

Finally hit this Honduran restaurant on 5th Ave. around 14th or 15th Street in the south Slope.

I had no idea what to expect from Honduran food, and my Honduran/Cuban friend mentioned that most of the "traditional" Honduran foods were served only on weekends, such as conch soup (sopa de caracol).

We were the only people in the restaurant, at about 1 on a weekday. I was a bit worried, but then again it's packed on weekends and during Honduran soccer matches. We ordered the Tacos Maya Mixto (mixed grill tacos), pupusas honduras, and an order of arroz con pollo.

The taco was fantastic, a long, cylindrical tortilla stuffed with grilled beef, deep fried and topped with cream, cheese, and a vinegary-cole slaw. Absolutely fantastic, and very filling for only $3. The pupusas were also very good, very much like an arepa - a flat, corn pancake stuffed with a mozzarella-like cheese... this was also served with a side of the cole slaw.

The arroz con pollo was the surprise. Grilled chicken breast mixed with cheesy rice, peppers, onions and carrots. It was fantastic, but for some reason reminded me of a breakfast item. Regardless, it is outstanding, and I can't wait to hit the leftovers tomorrow (the servings are fairly large).

This is a great restaurant with a nice menu - and I believe they deliver to most of the 'slope. If anyone else has eaten here I'd like to hear your thoughts on the place, especially if you have some familiarity with Honduran food.
