The best cultural experiences involve food
After fleeing El Salvador as refugees, the owners of Mazorca restaurant are well known for cooking traditional dishes at the Gorman House markets. Their son is professionally trained and is head chef now that they have reached their dream of running a restaurant of traditional Latin American cuisine.
The restaurant has a gorgeous traditional feeling, with exposed brick and wooden beams, and an open kitchen dominated by an enormous wood-fired oven that artfully chars the dishes and makes the entire space smell glorious.
They also offer a range of Latin American drinks - I enjoyed my orchata (rice milk with cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa) very much. The pupusas were completely new to me and a delicious revelation! They are similar to folded tortillas (but crispy) filled with beans and cheese (and sometimes pork). I would never have guessed that we had ordered gluten free.
This is a very new restaurant, and a fantastic culinary and cultural experience.
