Next up were the entrees. In between burlesque dancing and seductive music, we temporarily forgot we hadn't ordered yet. After looking through the choices for the night, we went for a fish and a meat. I chose the Cobia and my date picked the Cuban Boxer. They were both good choices but I have to tell you, of the two, I was blown away with his pork dish. The Cuban Boxer was a juicy and tender serving of braised pork shoulder, served with yuca bathed in a flavorful mojo, sitting over a pool of black bean puree, then crowned with a colorful pickled cabbage salad. Wow. It was mind blowing. One of those toe-curling, eye-rolling experiences you want to bring home to mother. The Cobia was tasty as well, just not as fireworks-setting as the pork, and it was served with a garnish of chorizo and plantain gremolata, atop a bed of hearts of palm escabeche, balsamic glazed roasted plantains and brussel sprouts. The whole masterpiece was then drizzled with clam mojo.
After basking in the aphrodisiac ambiance with a bit more entertainment , we ordered dessert. We chose the Quinoa Coconut Pudding and the Flan de Chocolate. Can you guess which one was mine? The pudding was a creative dish, served with lucuma ice-cream and toasted coconut. My favorite though, was the chocolate flan, which was enhanced with some raspberry coulis and a side of sweet "Morir Sonando" ice cream.
