Been meaning to write about a place we stumbled upon a few months ago in Westhampton called Tres Diamantes (sp?). When driving by we always saw crowds of patrons eating, but never got close enough to see what it was all about, so instead of our usual haunt Baby Moon, we pulled into the lot to check it out.
If it wasn't for the older american, english speaking waitress who coaxed us in due to the fact we looked like three deer in headlights staring at what we now know as a restaurnat filled with Salvadorian men.....all men....we would have walked out! LOL She let us know that it was all men due to the fact that Salvadorian men consider this their social time and leave the wives at home. Interesting.
We sat....we ate.... and we loved it.
For starers we orderd chicken tamales, which were so fresh I can't recall ever having one taste like this. They stuffed the tamale with an entire chicken leg..bone and all. The other starter was this arepa type thing that had many different fillings..I recall trying a cheese, bean, and ham...and all were delicious.
For dinner my dad got the Salvadorian combo special which came with a variety of meats, rice and a soft egg. I got shrimp and rice and mom got stewed chicken. All served with plantains and some sort of queso blanco.
I think the bill came to $45 for three.
A true chowhound experience. Give it a try, but if you are a woman.....bring a male companion.
