Calderon is a family owned and operated restaurant located in Mountain
View, California, just south of Castro Street. Featuring authentic

popular eatery serves Central American delicacies such as pollo
encebollado, platanos, lengua en salsa y crema as well as all the
Mexican staples including tamales and fajitas. A great way to sample
the Salvadorian flavor is to order El Calderon's Salvadorian Dinner
for Two. This dinner highlights typical Central American fare such
as pupusas, yucca con chicharrones, refried beans, rice, guacamole
salad, and includes dessert and coffee. For a traditional tropical
beverage we invite you to try a Passion Fruit Guanabana or a Nutty
Tamarindo served in a festive gourd, or choose from the assortment
of cold Mexican or domestic beers.
Calderon's menu also includes a variety of items to satisfy your
taste for something "south of the border". The Chile Verde
Burrito Deluxe is the ultimate burrito featuring a 12 inch tortilla
folded around tender pork squares laced in a smooth green chile
sauce. To taste a true masterpiece request a Tropical Tostada. This
colorful platter features a medley of beef, chicken or bean topped
by avocado, tomato, and fried plantains layered on a tortilla garnished
with salsa and Salvadorian cream sauce.

tortilla stuffed with cheese, pork, beans or a combination of any
two are served with a side of curtido (pickled cabbage). For our
vegetarian patrons, we offer a variety of menu choices. Lunch and
