New! Platano Salvadorean in Berkeley

maus1 | Aug 3, 200603:32 AM     29

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.
