The menu includes tapas such as tuna ceviche ($13), yuca frita ($8), and patacon rumba, which is smashed fried green plantains stuffed with grilled flank steak, cilantro mayo, peppers, onions, and tomatoes ($11). Entrees include shredded-beef stew with yellow plantains, rice, and beans ($20) and Argentinean-style rib-eye steak ($30).
Along with serving tapas and other Latin American-inspired dishes, Rumba Cafe presents samples of Latin American folk cultures through photographs and paintings by local artists, plus other live Latin music. Guests share plates of specialty tapas, such as arepas, empanadas, tostones, and yuca, or can opt for entrees such as the seafood paella or Argentinean meat platters. Daily happy hours at the bar loosen up guests for dance offs later that evening, or just excited seat-dancing with each arrival of more tapas. Warm orange and red walls inform the warm aesthetic of the décor, and dark wood tables offer an elegant stage for dining and drinking.
