Great food. Great drinks. Great music. What more would anyone need for a great party or special event? Want the great taste of the Yucatan to come to your place and give the guests at your special event a flavor that makes the mouth water? We know the place where the Yucatan meets the people of Pasadena, and if you like they can even bring the fun to you.

El Portal offers you the delight of the Yucatan in their delicious foods, and brings you great wines, ales, and cocktail selections to round out the flavor. They also bring you the sounds of Mexico to enjoy while you partake of their fare, and friendly service to make the whole experience superb. With plenty of room for your party at their restaurant, and the ability to cater your party elsewhere, El Portal can make your event a one of a kind Mexican fiesta that people will remember.

Depending on the number of people attending your party, you can either choose a special menu or have a buffet, allowing everyone to eat exactly what they want. El Portal also offers a full bar service so there’s no need to worry about the drinks that will accompany the delicious foods.

And if you’re still wanting to hold your event in your own house, or anywhere else in the Pasadena area for that matter, El Portal can help with that too. Its catering options (which includes a $25 per person per hour fee) will get all the setting up, and cleaning up, done for you.

El Portal has a number of set menus. The first, known as the Taco Bar, will include a bowl of Mexican salad, a choice of two meats (like grilled chicken, carne asada or carnitas) cheese enchiladas, rice, and tortillas.

The next menu is all about fajitas. It includes Mexican salad, chicken and beef fajitas, rice, tortillas and all the condiments you need to make your fajitas just the way you like them.

El Portal’s Mexican buffet, on the other hand, gives you the same great foods except the enchiladas are swapped out for mini chicken tamales, and you get a choice of two of these gorgeous dishes: Tilapia a la Veracruz, Chicken Monica, Steak or Chicken picado.

The last menu option will provide your party with salad, vegetables, saffron rice or Mexican potatoes, and a choice of two of either marinated chicken with chipotle sauce, sirloin steak with guajillo chile cream sauce, or salmon fillet with tomatillo sauce.

And if you have room for dessert, there are plenty of options at El Portal for that too. Your guests can choose from bread pudding, cheesecake, Berries El Portal, a homemade flan, or a slice of your own cake if you’d like to bring one along.

No doubt this talk of El Portal’s Yucatan/Mexican food is making you hungry. Contact them today and find out how much hosting or catering your party will cost. With their help, your guests are guaranteed to remember your event for a long long time, and will be longing for the next time they can share great food, and great fun, with you and your compadres.
