Yikes, we were indeed in the dungeon! Food was good overall, but poor sound design and loud music made conversation difficult. I’m glad to have your and others suggestions for future use— Arabian Nights is next on the queue, followed by Teo.
Foodwise, the lomo saltado, shrimp ceviche, whole chicken, and pulpo a la parilla were as good as I’ve had there in the past. The only big miss was the champignones anticucheros, which tasted like they’d reacted with the pan or with dish soap.
I’ve not been to Tawla yet, but want to check it out. At Southpaw, I found the BBQ jackfruit to be quite good, better than any of their meat dishes!
Do you have any dish recommendations for Mission Beach Cafe? They’re always crazy busy for brunch, but sparsely occupied at dinner.
