Tucked down low next to the towering new FDA building on Parklawn Drive sits an unpretentious Latin American restaurant you’re sure to love!
Seriously, if you know it, you LOVE it!
There is not one item on the menu that has been questionable. Mike and I visit frequently and order something different each time. Last night we went pescatarian/vegetarian and La Brasa did not disappoint. Mike ordered the shrimp fajitas sizzling hot on arrival and I had the veggy chimichanga. We skipped the wine but they do have a nice selection at reasonable prices.
This restaurant is a perfect date spot, friends outing, or family gathering place! La Brasa covers all the bases with its wide variety of menu options- all at a fair price. The classic Peruvian chicken meals with two sides start at just $7.50 and you can’t beat that.
This would be my order recommendation for dinner for two:
Chips and Salsa – that’s a given COMPLIMENTARY
- Gambas al Ajillo – shrimp sauteed in garlic and olive oil $10.95
- Brasa Salad (add chicken or steak) -Mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, hearts of palm, avocado, and red onions. $9.50
- Masitas de Puerco – Cuban style morsels of pork, topped with sautéed onions. Served with jasmine rice, black beans and plantains. $14.95
- tip: ask for the homemade green hot sauce, put it on everything!
Actually, you’d probably want to order another entree if you aren’t in the salad mood. I’m making myself so hungry!
The environment is friendly and relaxed. La Brasa is a family owned restaurant and you get all the feels each time you visit for dinner, or for lunch!
What are some of your favorites at La Brasa? I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time…xoxo
