Often, restaurants seeking to build transcontinental bridges find that their efforts are thwarted by a drastic shortage of edible suspension cables. Revel in successful attempts at cross-cultural cuisine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican and American fare at Mi Casa Su Casa Cafe.
The gastronomic gurus at Mi Casa Su Casa Cafe assemble a unique menu of dishes culled from the culinary traditions of both Mexican cuisine and American comfort fare. Noshers can fuel up around the clock with all-day breakfast platters, such as eggs criollos gussied up with onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and diced ham ($5). Midday munching begins with a hunger-defying selection of deli sandwiches, salads, and burgers, including the Southwestern cheeseburger bestrewn with swiss cheese, bacon, and robust cilantro mayo ($4.50). Tuck into Mexican favorites such as the burrito, which nestles chicken, beef, or pork with a blend of beans, cheese, and veggies in a flour tortilla for a meal more portable than a microscopic duffle bag ($5.50).
Mi Casa Su Casa Cafe brews fresh coffee made from Konuco organic Dominican beans roasted on-site. Baristas blend such classic mélanges as lattes ($1.75–$3) and mochas ($2–$3.50) alongside specialty drinks including a crème brûlée concoction—coffee and steamed milk mingling with vanilla and caramel syrup ($2.50–$3.50). The café envelops patrons in vibrantly hued walls that sport, like a stock car sponsored by art patrons, a changing selection of paintings created by local artists.
