Pumpkin Soup

This was the best Pumpkin Soup I've ever had, We have been back 3 times. This special soup should be added to the regular menu! The Tequila selection and portions are the best in Pasadena. I'm a fan of all the food I've had at El Portal. John

Cochinita Pibil

I have been enjoying the cochinita pibil here for the last 19 years! The pork is always cooked perfectly (never dry) and the pickled red onions pull everything together. I actually crave this dish and look forward to it. The customer service is always amazing; they make you feel like family.

It's so fresh you would think they have an avocado tree on the premises!

Ensalada Maya

My favorite Mexican salad! Delicious chicken, onions, cheese, and dressing. A great choice if you don't want something too heavy, but still filling!

You won't find better Panuchos any place except, maybe in the Yucatan! They are muy deliciosos!!!

Tostada Tradicional

Best tostada in town. The chicken is really moist and the dressing is a nice addition. Or eat it without the dressing and add salsa. Yum!

#14. Chicken Tamal, Taco & Enchilada

Our first time to eat here, won't be our last. Wonderful is just what we wanted for dinner. The drive from Upland, Ca. was worth the trip.

#7. One Taco & One Enchilada

This is my favorite go-to meal. Best tacos and enchiladas in Pasadena and beyond! I always get the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada combo, with sauteed fresh vegetables instead of rice, and a half portion of beans. Ooh, I'm craving it as I write this!

Shrimp Tostada

I had the shrimp tostada and loved it. The shrimp were fresh ( I could tell) and the tostada was light. It was very filling. I've been here a few times and have always had a good experience. Looking forward to going again soon.

Vegetarian Tostada

The perfect combo of fresh and satisfying! The Vegetarian Tostada is a crispy crunchy shell lined with a layer of creamy beans and filled with tender steamed veggies all topped off with refreshing lettuce, tomato, and jicama. It's the go to option for someone who wants to feel good about what they are eating while enjoying every bite.
