Being married to a Colombian lady and having lived in Colombia for about 10 years, I am very familiar with many of the typical foods and dishes. I have been to El Portal many times and it is "the real thing". It is authentic Colombian bakery some of our favorite pasties and drinks. They also offer some full meals that I dearly love. I would highly recommend El Portal to anyone. The service is good and the food is delicious.
We really like Cafe Brazil. I love the Deep Ellum location even though I don't make it all the way down there that often. I am glad this one is up north although I would prefer if it was either a little farther north into Carrollton or east into Far North Dallas, but beggars can't be choosy. The migas and the coffee bar are my favorite parts.
i moved here from miami, fl and i was taken to this restaurant by my friends and the food was really good very close to the cuban food in miami, very nice staff. is a small restaurant but the food is really good. i do recommend this place!!
