Friendly staff, exquisite cuisine-- that's all I have to write. If you're into ""upscale"" style dining and don't mind paying high prices for average or below average quality foods, Tropicana is not for you. It's for those who appreciate quality, freshness, and superb authentic foods. The establishment features buffet style dining (food is weighed by the pound) and includes delicious white rice infused with garlic, amazing beans (you can choose black or pinto-- each are brimming with flavor), marinated chicken, sauteed collard greens and other fresh vegetables, fresh salad blends (featuring iceberg and romaine, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber), and even rodizio (marinated meat on skewers available upon request). The brigadeiro cake is a delicate and moist cake with chocolate essences and a rich creamy icing. Excellent!
