Sharing a meal with loved ones is a way to connect, create memories, and discover which family member has been a robot all along. Refuel your clan with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Colombian and Latin cuisine at El Ranchito on Beach Boulevard. This Groupon is valid for the dinner menu only and does not include alcohol.
The cooks at El Ranchito cobble together an expansive menu of authentic dishes that draw on Colombian, Cuban, and Mexican culinary traditions. Friends and families can warm up their taste buds beside the spicy fires of six empanadas Columbiana ($4.99), each filled with a special blend of beef and exotic spices ($4.99). Scuba gear and SPF 30 sour cream are not required to enjoy the crispy, Colombian-style tilapia of the mojarra frita ($12.99), though palates may benefit from juggling lessons before they attempt to handle the diverse flavors of sirloin, pork sausage, pork rinds, and plantains in the traditional Colombian bandeja paisa ($12.99). Plates of seasoned carne asada ($9.99) allow diners to relive past visits to Mexico without glancing down at their eagle-and-snake tattoos, while the fresh-roasted pork of the Cuban lechon asado with mojo sauce ($8.99) testifies to the untold treasures of Caribbean cuisine.
