Food and Futbol

Friday, October 9, 2015 | 9:32 pm

Nothing says Saturday like cheering on your favorite fútbol team among good company and even better food. Catch the last day of El Portal’s weekly specials menu as you watch USA and Mexico battle it out on the field.

Grab a bite to eat with your fellow fans. It’s the last day to get Pumpkin soup and Quesadillas Rebozados de Yucatan. These chicken, spinach and roasted red pepper quesadillas brim with melted Cheddar and Monterey Jack and come with refreshing mango salsa, queso fresco, guacamole and beans.

As the restaurant reminds us, California is in a drought. The solution? Conserve water, drink beer like Modelo, XX and Pacifico. El Portal’s sangrias and margaritas also winning choices. Try the special Avion Margarita with Avion silver tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and a hint of orange liqueur for a better day, win or lose.

Whether you root for USA or Mexico, there’s one thing everyone can agree about: good food and drinks. Win or lose, El Portal is definitely a ‘keeper.’

El Portal is located at 695 E. Green Street, Pasadena. Call (626) 795-8553 or visit www.elportalrestaurant.com for more information.
