El Tamarindo's menu is all over the map - a map of the American continents, anyway. The proprietors have come up with a brilliant strategy to attract every Latin-food-loving soul within 100 miles: They'll dish up your meat and veg in the style of Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, El Salvador, Honduras, or Mexico. Just pick your pleasure. An appetizer mixed plate runs the gamut - Salvadoran pupusas filled with loroco buds, or beans and cheese, come with a tart slaw called curdito; a Honduran chicken-filled baleada is for dipping in a sweetish sour cream. The kitchen makes its own salty fresh cheese, and tortillas are cooked to order. Grilled skirt steak or a palomilla can be had for $10.99 or under, a great bargain, as is the fried fish of the day or sautéed shrimp. White tablecloths and charming, shy service make this setting muy relaxing.
