So you'd think the restaurant would be prepared on the last night of their coupon...not so. The Chef was off that night BUT we were pleasantly surprised with our meals.
Time ticking away...
Yep, service was SLOW but I can attribute that to poor timing, we heard a lot of people calling in their orders wanting to know if they can use their Groupon, people asking how to redeem their coupons. Bad night for us but we too were against the same wall and that may be why I'm inclined to be somewhat forgiving.
HEY OWNER...hint, know when you need staff.
Now to the food. We had fried yucca, lightly breaded and fried delicately. Yucca is pretty agnostic flavor wise, so some sort of Peruvian sauce would be nice.
I had the Arroz con Mariscos spicy style. It was yellow rice full of seafood like shrimp, squid, fish and octopus. Like a paella on a plate, tasty and filling plate.
My wife had Pollo Saltado spicy style also. The first thing we noticed was french fry's and rice on the same plate! Awesome for a carb diet! The rice was green, parsley rice...interesting taste and it blended well with the chicken, tomatoes and red onions (back off a notch with the onions). The top of the dish was nice but when you got to the sauce it was way toooooo salty. Good flavor but couldn't finish the last portion because of the salt. Wife complained she was up drinking H2O all night.
Like I said...the restaurant was unprepared for the last minute crowd BUT the sous chef (helper) was phenomenal give the situation.
We will go back again The menu is interesting and we would like to return on a less stressed evening.
