Tried a new Salvadorean in Berkeley: Platano, 2042 University Av.
Partially unfinished space, but the kitchen up and running.
Yucca cosida-nice size, great crispy pork, and a nice side of cabbage.
Tamales de sal- two wonderful masa tamales in a bannana leaf.
Albondigas- great taste and the sauce was home style light tomato. The meatballs with a mint overtone...just a bit dry.
Carne guisada- very soft with string-beans, potato, carrots. Like grandma would make if she was salvadorean!
Nice sides of beans and rice (red) and a simple salad.
Give it a try...it is definitely above average, great service by a nice Slovakian student...highly recommended.
