They’re baaaaaaack! That’s right, Latin House Grill now Latin House is open. It had been a while since I had eaten from LHG since they’ve been working on this project for the last few months. I know the menu by heart and it’s always very difficult when trying to decide what to have. The restaurant has ramped up things and back are the Twisted Potatoes which only old school Stalkers (LHG fans) will recognize.
We started with the Sneaky Nachos with Ribeye and the Fondu Mad Love. It wasn’t very original on my part to order 2 tortilla-based dishes but my wife insisted on the Sneaky Nachos and there was no way I was leaving without trying that Fondu. The Sneaky Nachos were just as we remembered them in a much larger portion. These dudes were topped with Crema, Avocado-Lime Sauce, Pico de Gallo, Cheese, and Ribeye. This is enough for a meal and a delicious one at that.
The Fondu Mad Love can be best compared to a Queso Fundido at an authentic Mexican joint. This version not only includes the melted cheese with Chorizo but also Madlove ground beef. Madlove is the name of their signature Burger which is a mix of Ground Brisket, Chuck & Sirloin. It was pretty unbelievable but the only problem I found was that the tortilla chips were too thin to scoop with.
You’ll be surprised to know that I did not order any of their burgers but not because I don’t love them but because the Chimi Burrito and Puffy Flatton are 2 very unique and signature items that deserve as much love for putting them on the food map.
It’s always a tough decision but with my wife here, she orders the Chimi while I go the Flatton route. The Chimi Burrito is just that, a burrito with a twist. The Chimi (I’m on a first name basis) is stuffed with Chuchi Rice (some of the most delicious Yellow Rice you’ll ever have), the protein of your choice (in this case Ribeye), Cheese and Fried Sweet Plantain slivers. But it doesn’t end there, it’s also topped with their Avocado-Lime Sauce & fresh Pico de Gallo and Twister potatoes. This is an epic dish and once you finish you will feel as you’ve been through a battle.
The Flatton, (I should admit I attend classes for Flattons anonymous) is what creeps into my daydreams jumping over a fence in lieu of sheep. The Puffy Flatton is an amped up Taco. It’s a flat-bread topped with melted Provolone, Swiss and Mozzarella Cheeses, Grilled Onions, Mushrooms with shredded Ribeye steak (I occasionally order the Chicken version too), Crema, Avocado-Lime Sauce & Pico de Gallo. No words have been created yet to describe this. We’ll leave it at that.
And just when you think, man I’m pretty full how am I gonna make that 20-foot walk to my car….there’s the Balls to the Wall. The dessert is named after the Accept song, just kidding. Well, imagine a very rich and tasty brownie rolled into a ball, battered and then fried but it doesn’t end there. It’s topped with powdered sugar and condensed milk drizzle, desserts don’t get more decadent than this.
You can tell by reading that I’m a giant of theirs and how passionate they are about making great food. Give it a try you’ll love it. And make sure you ask for Chuchi and tell her I say Hello, I’m her biggest fan.
