Holyoke Mall Welcomes Latino’s Cuisine
–Small business serving up authentic Latin favorites–
Holyoke, MA – Holyoke Mall has welcomed another small business to the shopping center with Latino’s Cuisine, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the upper level near JCPenney. Latino’s Cuisine originally opened as a pop-up tenant in December of 2019, serving hearty portions of authentic Latin favorites.
Inspiration for menu items comes from the Caribbean, South America and Africa. Breakfast options include traditional sandwiches as well as Dominican favorite, Los Tres Golpes Mangu with Egg Cheese & Salami. Appetizers feature variations of Empanadas and Alcapurias along with Bola de Papa (Potato Balls), Corn Sorullo de Maiz (Corn Fritters), Pincho de Pollo, (Chicken Skewers) and Canoa de res con Queso, (Beef Canoe with Cheese). The lunch and dinner menu includes Pernil (Roast Pork), Carne Frita (Fried Pork), Pulpo (Octopus), Carrucho (Conch Meat), Cabro Guisado (Oxtail Stew), Rabo de Vaca (Oxtail), Mondongo (Beef Tripe) and Mollejas Guisadas (Chicken Stew), just to name a few selections. Their house specialty is Pasteles en Hoja Yunta (Puerto Rican Tamale). Additional favorites include Mofungo, Maduras, and Tostones. All lunch and dinner plates are served with Rice and Beans.
“I fell in love with my mother’s cooking at a young age, said Eduardo Castillo, the owner of Latino’s Cuisine. “This is my 26th year in the restaurant business offering good service and delicious, home cooked food at affordable prices. Everything on the menu is prepared 100% fresh and you won’t find a microwave or a freezer in the restaurant.”
Eduardo saw a need for a Spanish restaurant at Holyoke Mall and even during the pandemic has felt blessed with his business. The 1,884 sf restaurant has table seating available and is open for limited indoor dining, takeout and catering. Menu items range in price from $2.00 to $15.00. Guests can also enjoy a free lunch on their birthday with a valid photo ID.
“We’re delighted to bring our guests this exciting new dining option, and to also welcome another small business to the shopping center,” said Holyoke Mall’s General Manager, Bill Rogalski. “Holyoke Mall is always looking to bring new and unique tenants to the center and the menu selection at Latino’s Cuisine is unlike anything else offered here.”
Latino’s Cuisine joins a list of tenants that have opened at Holyoke Mall over the last seven months including Cinnabon which opened in June, EA Teriyaki in October, and Wings Express and Furnari Jewelers, both of which opened in November. The restaurant also joins a list of small businesses at Holyoke Mall. Others include Theory Snow & Skate, The Greek Place, Graphic Stop, Sports Zone and A Touch of Beauty Nail & Spa. Latino’s Cuisine also has a restaurant at Holyoke Mall’s sister shopping center, Crossgates, located in Albany, NY.
