Hidalgo-style Mexican restaurant to open in downtown Woodburn
A group of brothers plans to open a Hidalgo-style restaurant in the heart of downtown Woodburn.
The Trapala Restaurant will feature meats cooked underground in the traditional Mexican style of the Hidalgo region, said Severo Trapalo, one of four brothers who plan to open the restaurant just off the Downtown Plaza by Nov. 15.
The brothers will use the barbecoa method of digging a hole in the ground and cooking meat up to seven hours in a pot underneath.
Its a totally different barbecue style, said Trapala, who has been restaurant manager at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort at the coast in Gleneden Beach.
The restaurant, located at 430 N. First St., will serve breakfast and will feature a kids play area outside, Trapala said.
We actually noticed we couldnt find a place for good breakfast in downtown Woodburn, he said.
