This is a post by N&O restaurant critic Greg Cox:
The recent opening of La Cacerola (2016 Guess Road; 919-286-3303) is a double boon for the local dining scene.
First, it brings a measure of closure to the tragic story of Kabab & Curry House, the previous restaurant at this address, whose owner was murdered in December.
Second, the Honduran fare that is La Cacerola's specialty has historically been an underrepresented cuisine in the Triangle. Among the dishes you'd have been hard-pressed to find until now are grilled Honduran chorizo, steak in onion sauce, and yuca (fried or steamed) with chicharrones and their traditional accompaniments, pickled vegetables and a distinctive salsa called chismol.
You can order à la carte or hit the compact buffet. A lunch special offers your choice of meat and three sides from the buffet for a bargain $6.50.
On Sunday mornings, options expand to include Honduran breakfast items such as the Tipico La Cacerola: beans, sweet plantains, eggs, sour cream and your choice of pork, beef or chorizo.
La Cacerola is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
