Mojito's Tropical Cafe is a wonderful, refreshing change...amazing food, people, and atmosphere. The decor and music makes you feel like you're somewhere far away on a tropical island. The food is a mix of Cuban, Hispanic, and Caribbean, and it's fresh, authentic and delicious. The service is first rate, and both times I've been the owner/manager has stopped by our table to speak to us. Super sweet lady, and genuinely interested in our dining experience.
I enjoyed it so much the first time, I went back a week later so I could try something different on the menu. The first time we started with an empanadas appetizer, which was great, and I had the pork Cubano Sandwich-excellent! The next time I tried the pulled pork dinner, and it was sublime! The pork is just perfection...so tender, it practically melts in your mouth! Dinner comes with several sides including plantains, rice and choice of red or black beans. My friend had the Cilantro Lime Chicken, and she raved about it as well.
I'm not usually a fan of Mojitos, but I tried their version, and it was made perfectly...I made myself stop at one (but my friend had 4!). There's a case full of fabulous looking desserts, but I've yet to try any of those. I heard there's an avocado pie that's not to be missed, but I'm not sure they have that all the time. Something else to look forward to for my next visit! Try this fabulous little place the next time you're in SC's capital city-you won't be disappointed!
