The 2 other reastaurants that really stand out are Victor's Cuban restaurant on Hidalgo--Alan had the Cuban sandwich--said it was great. I had pan fried chicken--amazing. The chicken skin was very crispy, but not oily at all. Served with a nice salad & 2 sides of your choice. A friend had black bean soup & a great looking salad.
And then Olivia's--it was wonderful! More expensive than most places, but for a special night out we really enjoyed it. We had Moroccan tapas to start--small dishes of a few things---
- babaganush, tabule, Moroccan carrot salad and matbuha. Served with pita bread. Then I had excellent lamb chops--I love them, but Alan can't stand the smell of them cooking, so I only have when eating out! Delicious. Alan had Mafrum - potatoes stuffed with ground beef cooked slowly in Moroccan red sauce and served over couscous. The restaurant is great!
I walked everday, so I only gained a few pounds!
