Mambo House


Anyone like Cuban cuisine?  Mambo House is a relatively new restaurant in Round Rock that serves up some yummy Cuban food.  Tonight’s dinner consisted of fried plantains, empanadas, Chuletas a la Parilla (grilled pork chops, yellow rice and caramelized onions), and tres leches.  Everything was perfect, and I will be sure to return again soon.



Cuba Bakery & Cafe


Today’s lunchtime mission was to get some empanadas.  According to Wikipedia, “Cuban empanadas are typically filled with seasoned meats (usually ground beef or chicken), folded into dough, and deep-fried.”  That was the case at Cuba Bakery & Cafe in Round Rock.  In the third picture you can see the state of the empanadas in the display case after my friend and I got our orders.  We almost cleaned them out of the chicken and beef ones.  Now we just need to time our assault so that we arrive as they are just coming out of the oven.  Yummy!
