Mia Casa in Athens, GA

uptown jimmy | Feb 26, 200709:41 AM     6

Awesome new tapas restaurant in the old Mia Madonna location downtown. Service was a little spotty and slow, but friendly. The food trends towards South American.

We had:

-Arenas, little pockets of corn meal with fillings. Extremely tasty.
-Tamale, good not great.
-Tostones with toppings, very very good.
-Empanadas, good but not great. The accompanying sauce made the dish.
-Ceviche, best I've ever had.

With several dishes you have a choice of meat/cheese toppings/fillings. I would avoid the shrimp, as it tastes good but has a mushy texture. The chicken was amazing. Can't wait to try the steak.

The house white wine is very tasty as well.

Dinner for two with wine around $35.00.

Highly reccomended. I hope they do well and stay open a long time.
