Restaurant details

Simply put, Got off the plane ,picked up by a friend, asked if I was hungry and this is where we ended up and I really liked it. Tucked away in a small strip mall , this little gem is worth seeking out.

Ordered cafe con leche and it was very good, not everyone makes a good cafe con leche and this place does.

they have a long list of mofongo dishes with everything from ropa vieja to bistec and I opted for the one with the camarones al ajillo ( shrimp in garlic sauce) and it was the best I've ever had. The portion of mofongo( plantain smashed and cooked and served in a ball form to be eaten with - in my case the shrimp and dipped in its sauce/juice- JUST LOOK AT THE PICTURE I'VE INCLUDED, YUMMMMMMY!!!

I decided to also try a passion fruit juice- "Parcha" and it was so good I almost ordered a 2nd one but that would've put me to sleep...LOL for those that know what parcha is and does, you understand , )

My friend ordered the tostones (fried plantain) with Grouper and I was like WOW! very tasty.

The ambiance is nice, has a home feeling to it where the tables are close, the music playing throughout the restaurant makes you want to get up and dance salsa or bachata.

The staff are very welcoming and the food is made fresh from the kitchen to your table, which is a must in many latin american countries, you simply can't just eat anything thats been sitting for a few minutes- it must be eaten hot, fresh from the stove/oven.

Very filling and generous portions for the price which by the way is not expensive at all. Where I live up in the Chicago area, these dishes would be priced alot higher and you would not get the portion like you do here.

Seek it out, i've heard that the chivo is excellent too when it's available.

Lunch time gets very packed and is very busy, we stopped in about 430 5pm and it was not as crowded but there was a steady flow of people coming in

Came here for lunch. Before ordering the fish I asked the waitress if it was fresh because I was very picky with fish (I specifically told her) and she assured me it was. When I received it, it smelled strange and tasted even worse. It was way past due. I believe because I told her I was picky with fish they washed it with something in the back to try to cover up the horrid taste and smell because it smelled of and tasted of a kitchen cleaning product. I almost threw up when I tried it and ended up sick the rest of the day and next morning. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE: On top of this I told the waitress I did not want it and she ended up charging me and refused to remove it from the bill. DO NOT COME HERE, I GOT SICK FROM EATING HERE. HEALTH HAZARD.
