Honduran restaurant opens on Guess Road
La Cacerola Café & Restaurant: A Honduran restaurant opened Friday in a small strip shopping center on Guess Road.
The location at 2016 Guess Road in Durham previously housed the restaurant Kabob & Curry House. Mohammed Arfan Sundal, the owner of that restaurant, was fatally shot Dec. 6. He was found behind the restaurant.
Ethel Sorto, the manager of the new restaurant, said La Cacerola is a family-owned business. She said they serve soup, food cooked on a grill including steak and pork, as well as other items such as fried tilapia, beef steak in onion sauce, and baleadas, which are flour tortillas filled with fried beans, chorizo, eggs, avocados, sour cream and cheddar cheese.
“We cook different foods from our region every day, so we have a lot of specialties in that area,” Sorto said.
The restaurant also has a buffet, and is open for breakfast. The breakfast menu includes fried beans, eggs, and an offering that includes a French roll with fried beans, shredded cheese and sour cream.
The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. It also has delivery and take-out service. For more information, call 919-286-3303.
