Owner Alex Cruz and his mother opened Latin Food in 2012 with one goal in mind. They wanted to bring the native cuisine of Honduras, their home country, to diners in Louisiana.
The result of that effort is a parade of competing and complementary flavors that will both delight and surprise you. Before you dive in, though, Cruz offers just a bit of guidance to help decode the flavors. “People sometimes make the mistake that Mexican food is Latin food,” Cruz says. “Our food is not as hot, as spicy, as Mexican food.”
