Went there for lunch today on a whim. Had a terrific Bandeja Montanera and my companion had Sobrebarriga a la Criolla (flank steak in creole sauce).
We started with a typical salad of shredded iceberg, beefsteak tomato, green peas and (Canned!) beets.
But then came the food.
My bandeja was an enormous platter of a deep fried pork rib with cracklins in tact, a piece of carne asada steak, and a mountain of white rice with delicious, soft and sweet maduro plantains. All with a pool of red beans in a smoky sweet sauce. A fried egg on top of the rice and a mini arepa made it all extra homey. $11.
The sobrebarriga was an enormous piece of flank steak, sauteed to a light brown and drenched in a pungent vinegary onion tomato broth, served with potato and yuca. This arrived with a side of white rice and red beans. $10.
With two cups of great cafe con leche to-go, lunch was $24.
And if we weren't revenous we could have easily made this into two meals (lunch and dinner)
not a bad find.
many people were enjoying a cream soup that was served in a stoneware bowl, and was brimming with shrimp, clams, scallop in the shell, and squid. this looked great but I wasn't sure what it was or how to order. if you know, please clue me in!
