Food never tasted this bad!!
First let me start by saying I was excited about finding a Latino restaurant that was presented as being a step above your average take out/ home cooking. Secondly, I am Latina and have a very diverse palate, eating out on average 3 times a week anywhere from restaurants with celebrity chefs to your neighborhood joint. Third, I was celebrating my 40th birthday with my family. The place is very pretty with your typical loungy look and feel. The menu had some interesting items. NEEDLESS TO SAY THE FOOD WAS AWFUL!!!
The owner must of had all of his friends write up the fictitious glowing customer reviews. Food never tasted this bad. Everything was insipid. Totally tasteless. The calabaza(pumpkin) soup looked like Gerbers version of spaghetti stage 2 for toddlers, it had little pieces of spaghetti in it and tasted like cardboard, I could not eat it and had to send it back. The appetizers were either overcooked or undercooked and everything tasted as if it was soaked in water after it was cooked. I could have done a better job. How can you get tostones wrong? They were soggy and undercooked.
Our compensation for a horrible meal, an attempt to serve us more bad food by offering us desert. I had to pass as I just couldn't stomache the idea of attempting to eat anything else there. My mother ,brave soul and the reason I decided to have dinner in Bklyn and Latino cuisine, had the spongy disgusting lame imitation of their bread pudding. I am mostly outraged at the misrepresentation of this establishment. I use Citysearch all the time to choose my restaurants and for the most part have found the reviews to be accurate. This was deceptive and unacceptable. I truly never write a review but this tragedy I wish on no one.
