After properly cooking a shrimp, its once-brown shell turns rosy pink, letting chefs know that it's both ready to serve and profoundly embarrassed for showing up without pants. Make a meal of deliciously mortified seafood with today's Groupon for a prix fixe dinner of Latin-American fare for two at Mambo Jambo in Alpharetta. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a two-course dinner for two, which includes one goat-cheese salad (a $10.95 value) and an order of paella de mariscos for two (a $23.95 value per person; a $58.85 total value).
- For $29, you get a two-course dinner and drinks for two, which includes one goat-cheese salad (a $10.95 value), an order of paella de mariscos for two (a $23.95 per person), and either two glasses of sangria (a $6.95 value each) or two mojitos (an $8.50 value each; up to a $75.85 total value). This option is only valid Monday–Thursday.
Wafting aromas of sizzling seafood usher diners into Mambo Jambo's colorful and lively dining room. Kick off an evening of harmonized chewing with an appetizing goat-cheese salad, an emerald ensemble of baby lettuce and romaine quenched with a flavorful ambrosia of key-lime vinaigrette and balsamic dressing and topped with tumbling boulders of honey-roasted walnuts and crumbled goat cheese. After patrons have fully plundered herbaceous platters, a member of Mambo Jambo's friendly wait staff interrupts dialogues of gratuitous lip-smacking with a main course of paella de mariscos. Through the paella's copious haystack of saffron-infused rice, diners can dig for a plethora of seafaring savories, eliciting forkfuls of chewy calamari and disrupting a group of shrimp, scallops, and clams as it drafts a position on how central nervous systems are overrated. With today's second option, diners can assuage digestion with a sweet glass of sangria or a minty mojito.
Replete with colorful abstract wall art, a stage featuring frequent live entertainment, and a full-service bar, Mambo Jambo is a sanctuary for casual epicurean enjoyment. Assess the hip-swiveling skills of fellow patrons with a seat near the dance floor, or keep a wary eye on chef-hat-stealing breezes in the bistro's outdoor dining area.
