The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Colombian fusion fare and drinks at Medellin Restaurant in Coral Springs.
A fiesta of mouthwatering Latin flavors dances across Medellin’s expansive menu of Colombian-based cuisine. The plátano con aguacate ($7), a sweet and savory commingling of guacamole and fried plantains, tickles tongues as a starter, and house-made picante salsa gives a kick that sends the flavor of a crispy-chicken- or beef-stuffed quesadilla ($8) past the hands of overzealous mouth goalies. The sobrebarriga bogotana ($11), a Colombian-style flank steak sautéed in salsa criolla, balances its meaty boldness with rice, veggies, and fried yucca. Chompers eager to cleave ensandwiched treats release a wave of coastal flavors with the pollo del Tropico ($7), a grilled chicken sandwich topped with cilantro-infused fruit salsa and melted swiss, bobbing on a raft of french fries or fried yucca. Sweet dreams find fulfillment in a classic tres leches custard ($4) or a frosty raspberry juice ($3). Medellin’s warm, earth-toned walls and spacious dining room create a romantic setting where stomachs fall in love with Latin morsels and unused napkins long for the company of crumbs.
