How do I love Sofrito Mama's, let me count the ways! Well let's start with the first and most important: the food. Your food will be made-to-order, so it is as fresh as can be. The recipes are completely authentic Puerto Rican and you can taste the love! Try the Roast Pork, it is succulent, moist, seasoned perfectly and not fatty at all. The empanadas are also wonderful; crisp and never greasy.
Next: the atmosphere. This is a small family-owned joint, and that works in their favor! Owners Jason & Alicia are gracious and welcoming. They are happy to help you through the menu, explaining their many selections. In addition to their regular daily menu items, Sofrito Mama's also offers daily specials such as Mofongo and Bacalaito.
Last: service/atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful, they seem genuinely happy to see you. The place is clean and neat, and if the weather is agreeable you can eat outside at one of their tables.
So do yourself a favor if you're in Sarasota and try Sofrito Mama's. It won't be your last visit!
