This was our second time dining at Salsa Latina in Old Bridge, NJ (Matawan mailing address). The first time it was a Saturday night and even though it was packed we got there just in time to get a table. The service was great, the food was better.
Today we found ourselves with only one of our five daughters, so we proposed eating out for lunch after church. I suggested we try Salsa Latina for lunch.
I had Churrasco skirt steak with Chimichurri sauce. The steak was good and tender, however, I ordered it medium rare and it was clearly rare. It was ok for me, so I did not send it back. The Chimichurri sauce seemed a bit bland, but I had never had this sauce before, so I could not be a judge.
My daughter, Kelly had Pastelon de Platanos Manduros which is sweet plantain layered with ground beef. I had a taste, it was really good.
My hubby, Tim, had one of the specials, a chicken dish with mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers with a marsala like sauce. We all had spanish rice with pigeon peas. Very flavorful.
I had Cafe con Leche, which is comfort food for me and the three of us shared two desserts which were delicious.
All around a good meal, we will be back again. Highly recommended.
