In my opinion, El Palenque in Wahiawa has some of the best Mexican food on the island. The food there is truly authentic Mexican and everything I’ve tried is delicious. They have the tastiest Spanish rice, wonderfully juicy meats, amazing sauces, and the hottest salsa ever!
Holy chillies! When you order your meal in house you will get a complimentary basket of chips and the hottest salsa you will ever eat! This salsa is lined with jalapenos and other chillies. This will make spicy lovers celebrate and mild lovers cry. The salsa is super fresh and a little goes a long way. I love to eat it with my meal in tiny bites while I blot the sweat off my forehead.
The only downfall about El Palenque is the restaurant is only 6 tiny tables and has sub-par ambience, and when I say ambience I am referring to their dirty looking walls, floors, old furniture, dozens of snap shot photos of patrons, and bad Mexican decor on the walls. Despite the atmosphere, anytime I am in the Wahiawa area you will find me sitting at one of those iffy tables or grabbing some take-out. More reviews on El Palenque’s food to come…
