A diamond in the rough!

We heard about this hidden gem on the popular tv show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”; and were eager to try it even though it meant driving an hour to get there. It was worth it! We ordered the roast pork dinner and it blew our socks off. The meat was greaseless, tender, and loaded with flavor—-thanks, in part to the addition of Mabo’s infamous Moljo sauce. YOW! Served with crisp, sweet fried plantains, and a bowl of black beans which we ladled over our fluffy white rice. In addition, we ordered their famous combination platter, featuring empanadas, sweet potato croquettes, deep fried mashed potatoe balls with a ground pork mixture in the middle, more fried plantains, and several other native dleicacies. Each entree cost around $10, but is generous enough to feed 2. Just as we were leaving we saw our personable waitress taking a scrumptuous looking bean salad to another table, laced generously with shredded chicken (pork also available); and we promptly decided to return as soon as possible for Round Two. The resutaurant was actually a former gasoline station, but has been stylishly converted into a full-fledged resaurant, sitting right on the corner of Western Ave. and Victory Blvd. The staff is more than willing to share their recipes; and are quite cordial. Outdoor and indoor seating are both available. If going for lunch, I suggest you either go early or late, as it is quite a popular destination for many of the movie and tv studio employees nearby; and tends to get crowded around noon.

Roast Pork dinner

Juicy, greaseless, wonderful flavor, good bark on the pork. Served with white rice, black beans, and fried plantains. This is the way pork was meant to taste!
