Reviews for Silpancho’s House

This place was an utter disappointment. The fire thing you seen when you walk in is an article in the Washington Post of when this place used to be good, I guess. We were welcomed with an endless amount of hammering from below, apparently some construction that couldn't wait until after hours?? We began to order and the first thing we wanted, Sopa de Mani, was sold out, mind you this is before 2pm. A lot of the dishes we wanted to try are only available on the weekends, by full review
This place is a neighborhood treasure. The food is wonderful - it's delicious, unique, authentic, fresh, and the portions are terrific. The menu changes each day and they offer a lot of interesting soups in addition to staples like salteñas and the namesake silpancho.  The prices are very low for what you get, the restaurant is very clean (and COVID-safe), and the staff are very warm and friendly.  

My only complaint is the hours - they close at 5:00 so it's full review
Such great food and distinctive stand alone building in Del Ray, the type of business you want to support for its sincerity and genuineness.  Unique, off the beaten path, authentic (it appears), unassuming, family run.  The ideal independent eatery: clean, honest, there for you.

For sure not to be confused with Puerto Rican, Caribbean or Central American food.  While not perfect, they try and for the most part succede in pleasing with unusual specialties like full review
