Hello CAFE ENYE.
Different starters greeted the guests as they embarked on a mini gastronomical adventure. Since alcohol was involved it would be prudent to protect one's self by eating some oily dishes first. Based on studies, oil would coat your stomach lining. Hence, the absorption of the alcohol would slow down and decrease. The Croquettes would be perfect for this. A little addicting, the potatoish gooey middle reminds me of a childhood favorite. For something more heavy, one could go for the PATATAS BRAVAS. Drizzled with Sofrito Aioli and harissa, this one goes well with the mimosas.
A little garlicky, the GAMABAS ENYE STYLE is something shrimp lovers would enjoy. Partner it with the CILANTRO MUSSELS and CLAMS and you would definitely have a pleasant time.
If you are not a rice eater, fret not since CAFE ENYE serves CUBANO. These panini looking sandwiches could either have mahi-mahi or grilled marinated beef. I would go for the latter as the chimichuri and cheese works hand in hand to make it a delicious dish.
A little bit on the middle Eastern cuisine, the CHICKEN MOJO SKEWERS could make your day. Adding the cilantro yogurt on top balances out the spices used to make this dish. 1 cup of rice is not enough.
My favorite though would be the SPANISH BREAKFAST PLATE. This is a behemoth and has a plethora of choice viands on top. Spanish style toast, crispy bacon, Spanish Chorizo, backed beans and grilled tomatoes. The chorizo is definitely a must. Adding bacon made this plate perfect.
Aside from the food, the ambiance was laid back and relaxed. This place is a gem hidden in plain sight.
