I went for a meal at Las Iguanas with a friend last week.
ENSOPADO DE CARNE
Tender slow-braised goat in coconut milk & tomatoes with chillies, carrot & cassava, served with coriander rice, farofa & sweet plantain.
QUINDIM DE YAYA
Meaning ‘girlish charm’, a Brazilian-style homemade sweet baked coconut custard flan, served with a berry compote.
I was completely under-whelmed.
I couldn't have picked out any of the ingredients in the main dish in a line up. When I started writing this blog entry and checked the menu again I was actually shocked at the list of ingredients! Where were they?!!?
The rice was microwaved or boil in the bag and the meat was tough.
The dessert was a coconutty thing surrounded by jam.
My friend said her Paella was saturated in garlic.
I was even disappointed by our Long Island Ice Teas.
