Mambos was a choice out of necessity. We were on our way to the Glendale’s Americana Street Feast. Yet, as we drove past we saw the enormity of the lines and crowds, and I quickly made an executive veto decision. With haste and agile phone skills, Mambos was the plotted with our iPhones.
The live band created a festive feel as we jaunted toward Mambo’s door. We hungrily ordered the giant prawns, the double fried plantain shrimp salad, and the roast pork. The double fried plantains were featured on Triple D’s, so I knew one of us had to order it. I couldn’t believe how much shrimp was in the salad. We kept eating more and more shrimp – such a healthy portion. My roast pork was quite juicy quite similar to that of Versailles’s. I love anything Pork, Ham, or Pig related.
What turned out to be a disappointment with Street Feast turned into a pleasant one with Mambos
What to Order: Roast Pork and the Double Fried Plantains
