These old clothes make me horny in Spanish…

Now, I’ve been to a whole buncha concerts at the Axis Club (formerly known as the Mod Club), but little did I know that there was this funky little joint just down the street serving up righteous cuisine from all kinds of different Latin American countries. We’re talkin’ pupusas, paella, ropa vieja, ceviche, empanadas, churrasco and more — this is Que Rico Tapas Bar!

We’re starting off with some Seafood Gone Wild in Flavourtown! These frituras de bacalao (cod fritters) are kinda like a cross between crab cakes and fish ‘n chips, with a nice crunchy breading and a whole lotta spicy donkey sauce — I’d put that on a flip-flop!!!

Now, you know I couldn’t mention pupusas off the top and then NOT order them, right? Man, I haven’t had these savoury Salvadorean snacks since The Before Times, bro! But you really can’t go wrong with cornmeal pancakes stuffed with beans and cheese — and that aji verde sauce really kicks it up another notch!!!!

Now it’s time for the main event, and we’re going with a classic Cuban dish — ropa vieja. I’ve never been to Cuba before, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, and this dish is pretty legit. Nice, chewy shredded beef with rice, beans, peppers and fried plantains; dude, the fried plantains is what makes it! Definitely a lot prettier than the ropa vieja I had in Miami (which is basically Cuba del Norte), and I think it tastes better, too. Que rico indeed!!!!
