Mojito: A User’s Guide

Latin American Cuisine | Cozy Atmosphere | Salsa Music and Dancing

Sample Menu

  • Salad: pineapple, mango, jicama, and papaya tossed with housemade cilantro-lime dressing
  • Entree: citrus-marinated steak, broiled and served with white rice, black beans, yuca frita, tostones, and guasacaca
  • Drink: a Caribbean-inspired cocktail, such as a Tucán, with passionfruit, guava, mixed dark Jamaican rum, and lime

While You’re Waiting: Salsa music and other live Latin performances set the tone in this teeny, lively cafe. Don’t be surprised to see tables pushed aside to create a dance floor—and be ready for a server, bartender, or other friendly staff member to ask you to join them.

Inside Tips

  • If you like tostones, you’ve come to the right place. Each plate is accompanied by a side dish of these sweet fried plantains that come topped with a spicy avocado dip.
  • Mojito serves up a mean version of its namesake Cuban cocktail. Bartenders mix fresh mint leaves, lime, and silver rum and serve it over crushed ice.

Vocab Lesson
Caipirinha: a Brazilian cocktail made with the sugarcane-based spirit cachaca and lime juice.
Plantain: very popular in Caribbean dishes, these starchy fruits are a slightly larger cousin of the banana and must be cooked before serving.
Tostones: fried slices of unripe plantain; a common side dish in Latin America.

So before any customer steps through the door, they've already picked up some tropical vibes and started thinking about the food waiting inside—burgers, sandwiches, rice bowls, and more, all cooked up with plenty of Caribbean influences.
