The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10 to 15 years in one of its maximum security prisons, but the second best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about Ecuador with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Latin-American comestibles at Cocina Latina in Uptown.

Cocina Latina has been featured in Mpls.St.Paul and Heavy Table for its authentic and affordable Ecuadorian dishes. Gently dip your taste buds' toes into the menu's waters with a trio of empanadas ($4.50) or maduro con queso, plantains so lovingly fried they make bananas yellow with jealousy ($3.99). Bandera combines rice, goat stew, beef-tripe stew, and shrimp ceviche into an adventurous appetite's dream come true ($11.99), and bandeja latina presents a mix of pork cracklings, fried egg, rice, beans, corn cakes, avocado, and sweet plantains so hearty it will stick to neighbors' ribs ($12.99). Despite the restaurant's mastery of meats, vegetarian options exist, such as plato vegetariano, a four-legged-friendly medley of rice, beans, red potato, avocado, plantain, and cassava root ($9.99). Finicky tykes unimpressed with cultural authenticity can nibble chicken fingers or mac 'n' cheese ($3.99 each).


Mpls.St.Paul and Heavy Table both featured Cocina Latina. Eighty percent of Urbanspooners recommended the restaurant.

Customer Reviews

The most delicious chile rellanos around!
Pamela S. · November 1, 2011
The servers are very nice, and the food is good and authentic.
Lisa O. · November 1, 2011
Service was prompt and friendly. Food was excellent and in large portions. The guacamole is the best I have tasted. The cloudy sauce they bring out with the food looks weird, but is delicious. Prices were very reasonable. I would go back.
