The usual crooked picture of the entrance. Not what I expected. Very nice place and bigger than I thought. My fellow co-workers suggested I check this out. Thanks JB for letting me know about this place. I can see why you come here when you can.
Now, for me this is just a cultural thing. I am not from the Caribbean, so it’s still hard for me to get used to the short answer and reply dialogue. The ladies working at the restaurant are nice and doing their job but there is no small talk involved. I am very much a small talk kind of person. I would ask for a suggestion on the menu and they would just say, “whatever you want”. Now, to be clear. They are not being mean or rude, it’s just truly a cultural thing. Just not something that I can ever get used to.
The mangu was not hot as I had expected it to be. It was warm bordering on cold. The breakfast was delicious. The fried cheese was my favorite. Again, the customer service was the only concern. I am Latino myself so I get it. But still doesn’t jive with me.
Foodbidden. Approved! But they need more small talk. : )
Oh, and hot mangu.
