mexican in durham, nc


So on Jim Leff's recommendation I tried out El Paraiso on Alston Ave. Well, my friends, their baby and I actually walked through the door. Sadly, the music was deafening - two guys were shooting pool. Seemed a bit more like the Honduran pool hall Jeff mentioned. My friends did say it was like walking into a place on Oaxaca. I'll give it a go another time when not with a baby, but we were pretty disappointed. Instead we went to Los Comales, which was great. Next time you're in town, Jeff - check out Super Taqueria a few blocks down Roxboro from Los Comales - I'd be curious to know how you think they compare.
