I was on my way to somewhere else and hit a lot more traffic than expected, so rather than spend the afternoon on 95, I hit the Cypress Creek exit and headed down to Cabo Blanco. I did take out at the Oakland Park location; this is their original location and it's a bit more comfortable as a restaurant, despite the 80's like mirrors.jump-->
Cabo Blanco Cypress Interior
No hostess, just sit down and a dude brings over a menu. It's an all in one menu; the lunch specials are in the back, chinese style. Numbers and pictures. I didn't get the scheme and I order "The Corvina". "Which is that?", asked my server. I had to point at the menu. #8 as it turns out.
They brought me some bread and some peruvian spreads along with butter; I was surprised that they have lemon for the iced tea. Usually the Latin places only have lime.
Cabo Blanco Bread
I didn't like either of the dipping sauce. The green sauce (Aji Amarillo?) was very spicy but didn't compliment the bread. The yellow didn't have much taste and it wasn't as good as butter.
A big negative of this place is the hideous music, which is way too loud. Bad dance music in Spanish. And of course all 3 TVs were on useless Spanish nonsense stations. Being informed isn't part of the culture as you'll never find the news on in one of these Latin places.
The fish came out in about 15 minutes.
Cabo Blanco Corvino Lunch Special
A nice portion; the fish is breaded with a uniform coating reminiscent of packaged fish and chips. I didn't know from the menu that it comes with beans, but they were welcome.
Cabo Blanco #8
I don't like the peruvian salads; just oil and cilantro is not a dressing.
Under $10 for this. Service stinks; no refill on the tea and there's 1 register so everyone has to wait if one server can't figure something out, which was the case today. This place reminds me of Latin Bohemia Grill.
