On a Sunday afternoon, I walked into joy my friends at Meson Criollo Grill Restaurant. The husband is from El Salvador and his wife a Colombiana. She would order for me and plate could have been three dinners for me. We started with these piping hot crisp empanadas. I would go back for those alone. Then my hearty meal of steak, egg, rice, beans and plantains were the feast. When in pseudo Colombia you drink as they do so I order a Colombian soda.
As for the decor, it seem casual. I was so into my food and company that I barely noticed. The restaurant is located in a strip mall.
