Christmas and New Years Eve have come and gone and things are getting back to normal..kids go back to school Monday. Our cold weather has finally left us..we don't do well in 19 degrees!! I'm sure your ready to get out for lunch or dinner, and enjoy our warmer weather. How about a restaurant with the authentic flavors of Latin food? I've got just the spot for you!
FUEGO LATINO GASTROPUB http://fuegolatinogastropub.com
Jorge Alcocer – also known as Chef Mario Alcocer – is the proud owner of Fuego Latino Gastropub. He began his culinary career at 18 and learned that all of the hard work, dedication and passion for what he does best would someday pay off. That day has come with Fuego Latino Gastropub with all of its rave reviews.
If you are familiar with our neighboring city, it is right next door to the very popular Round Rock Donuts. Fuego Latino is a Latin American style restaurant with food from Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico and more. It’s a small, quaint and romantic place, especially in the evening, with a very comfortable feel. There is a sense of pride that is shared with the diners, with Chef Alcocer making a point to visit tables and check to make sure all is going well.
Here is a sampling of their menu…on the Shared Dishes menu you’ll find Acapulco Style Spicy Shrimp Ceviche – slow pouched shrimp marinated with garlic tomato collis, Serrano, red onion slivers and cilantro... and Beef Argentinian Empanadas - a flank steak cooked with caramelized onions flamed raisings served with pepper & traditional chimichurri. On the Entrée menu there’s baby back pork ribs in Chile Verde – slow cooked pork ribs, creamer potatoes and cabbage pickled salad…or…Pipian Duck, Mushroom and Corn Enchiladas – soft tortillas are filled with braised duck leg cooked with ancho chiles, sautéed corn & mushrooms, coated with pumpkin pre-hispanic sauce…or the Grilled Skirt Steak Huarache – a crispy flat tortilla, refried black beans, poblano and onion relish.
