Shrimp Ceviche

The BEST in all of Pasadena, believe me, I've tried them all! The shrimp Is diced up and so delicious with a hint of jalapeno! So easy to scoop up in your chips it really hits the spot with a Cadillac margarita!

#6. Fresh Anaheim Chile Relleno

Went solo for first time in quite a while. Found El Portal to have a nice patio dining environment. I ordered my all time go to, the chile relleno, and El Portal did not disappoint. Good flavor, I'll be sure to come back.

Grilled Chicken & Avocado

The Mixed Greens go perfectly with the grilled Chicken in this dish. A healthy alternative to traditional dishes served here. I have been coming here since I was 12 and the food is ALWAYS amazing. And the Avocado is always fresh!

As always, the food is consistently good at El Portal. The authenticity of their dishes is unique, compared to other Mexican restaurants, where everything tastes the same. The service is impeccable. We are always made to feel like family, and like we are at home. The drink choices are always an adventure. Their live music is always, icing on the cake. Dining at El Portal is always a very fulfilling experience.

Barramundi Tropical.

This tilapia dish was a plentiful portion. The mango salsa was an added sweet delight without it being overbearing or stealing the spotlight from the tilapia's simple, yet mouth-watering taste. Undeniably --Decadent. Flavourful. Tender.

Tostada de Fajitas

This was a very delicious plate with tender beef and delicious black beans and vegetables. I will look forward to enjoying it again.
