The Scoop: For more than a decade, El Golfo has been a staple of the Silver Spring and Takoma Park communities. An emphasis on family is El Golfo’s key philosophy in regards to its operation, service and atmosphere. Ada, the friendly owner, explains that “we open the doors to our community for all kinds of events here from fundraisers to bands and even book signings.” The family ethic clearly works for El Golfo as every Mexican and El Salvadorian dish on the menu that we’ve tried is top notch. Ada is emphatic that El Golfo sells “the finest Latin American cuisine in the area” and that her food supplier negotiations focus on quality rather than price. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but a treat comes each spring when a unique menu is added for a few months to supplement the classic dishes. Prices are somewhat higher than other area Latin American restaurants but the quality of food and service more than make up for the difference.
