Latino’s Cuisine Coming to Walden Galleria
— Small business to serve up authentic Spanish & Caribbean-inspired cuisines at WNY’s largest shopping center —
Buffalo, NY: Latino’s Cuisine, a small business restaurant venture originating from Holyoke, Massachusetts is opening a 1,617 sq. ft. restaurant at Walden Galleria this summer. The restaurant will be located on the upper level of the shopping center next to Urban Air Adventure Park, serving hearty portions of authentic Spanish & Caribbean-inspired favorites.
Inspiration for menu items stems from the Caribbean, South America, and Africa. Breakfast options include traditional sandwiches as well as Dominican favorite, Los Tres Golpes Mangu with egg, cheese, and 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). Their lunch and dinner menu includes Pernil (Roast Pork), Carne Frita (Fried Park), Pulpo (Octopus), Carrucho (Conch Meat), Cabro Guisado (Oxtail Stew), Rabo de Vaca (Oxtail), Mondongo (Beef Tripe), Mollejas Guisadas (Chicken Stew) and several other authentic dishes. Latino’s 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, owner of Latino’s Cuisine. “This is my 27th 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 freezer in the restaurant.”
Eduardo first saw a need for a Spanish restaurant in Holyoke, Massachusetts at Holyoke Mall, a sister property of Walden Galleria, that opened in 2021, and at another sister shopping center at Crossgates Mall in Albany. The restaurant at Walden Galleria will offer table seating for indoor dining, as well as takeout and catering. Menu items will range in price from $2.00 to $15.00. Guests can also enjoy a free lunch on their birthday with a valid photo ID.
