El Puerto means "the door" or doorway in Spanish. It is fitting because eating there is like opening the doorway to Mexican culture. Born from the culinary capital of Mexico, the food of El Puerto is based on the cooking from the state of Jalisco in Mexico. When you think of "Authentic Mexican Cooking", your taste-buds are thinking El Puerto. In fact, being the birthplace of Mariachis and Tequila, Jalisco is quintessentially Mexican.
The cuisine and artwork at El Puerto reflect the beauty of the country. Jalisco touches the mountains and the seas, and the dishes from El Puerto combine these ingredients to mouth watering perfection. Whether it is the chicken dishes like Pollo en Mole, pepper dishes like Chile Relleno, or Shrimp Fajitas, El Puerto is where foods from the lands, skies and seas of Mexico meet.
Of note are the original murals that decorate the restaurant. Jalisco is the birthplace of “Mexican Muralism”, and fine specimens of this are found at El Puerto. While politics abound in Mexican artwork, ideal life depictions and beauty can also be found. Jalisco women are known for their beauty, particularly their eyes, and the artwork here delightfully depicts scenes from this region and the beauty it comprises.
For a wonderful experience into the heart of Mexican cuisine and art, open the door through a trip to El Puerto Restaurant. Your taste-buds and artistic sense will thank you.
