Costa Azul (2721 Guess Rd) is Honduran/Mexican and is kind of like paradise. One way to explain how I feel about it is to say that I just ate more in one sitting than a human is made to contain, and still my mouth is watering looking at these photos.
As you can see from this action shot, the tacos (we had pastor) are pretty simple. It came on a pillowy fresh tortilla, was not at all greasy, and was quite subtle but delicious. I didn’t see a salsa bar but I didn’t feel the need to look for one.
We also ordered a surprisingly huge licuado–they were out of melon but offered papaya, which wasn’t on the menu. Unfortunately it was so frothy and good that I drank far too much of it.
This is the sopa al bondigas, a meatball soup, which was a special. It came with some of the same great fresh tortillas (which are also fried to make the chips that came with salsa when we sat down). The soup was extremely comforting and beefy.
The highlight of the meal (and of my week) was this cubano torta. Check out the many layers of goodness, which include beef, ham, egg, avocado, and beans.
This place is in the same location as, and may be a reincarnation of, a Honduran place that I went to in the spring but that closed before I had a chance to blog about it (I don’t remember the name). It is now remodeled to be much more appealing both inside and out, with tropical-paradise-blue walls and a big open dining area. Apparently they have more Honduran specials on the weekends–our waitress mentioned crab leg soup tomorrow! I didn’t notice any posted hours but there were awesome-looking breakfast offerings on the menu.
