La Costa Honduran and Latin Food

West Broward now boasts at least three Honduran restaurants. La Costa, housed in an old doughnut shop across from a car dealership, is popular with Central Americans and curious gringos. If you're just getting hip to Honduran cooking, try the baleadas (Spanish for "single shot") first. Served everywhere from Tegucigalpa to La Ceiba, baleadas are hot, fat, fluffy tortillas smeared with beans, crema, and strips of marinated steak. They function as utilitarian staples, appropriate for everything from breakfast to midnight snack. Two of them set you back a whole $7.50. Specialty house breakfast (just your typical Honduran fare of eggs, meat, white cheese, refried beans, and crema) bests the competition as well.
