After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disc with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Orale Mexican Restaurant in Hollywood.
Native Mexican and owner Juan Rodriguez serves a bevy of authentic stomach-stuffers to Floridian feasters with the help of an attentive service staff. Savvy snackers bombard embedded taste buds and online Scrabble nemeses with first-course forkfuls of tostadas de ceviche, shrimp, pico de gallo, and avocado seasoned with fresh lime juice on a flat, fried tortilla ($7.95). Hungry diners gladly muscle through main courses such as the hot and spicy burrito, topped with beef tips and Orale sauce ($10.95), or sizzling trios of marinated pork-filled tacos de carnitas ($9.59). The pollo de poncho features fiery chorizo sausage plucked directly from Florida’s finest encased-meat groves and spread across a grilled chicken breast with rice, beans, and three tortillas ($11.95). Finish off satiation symphonies with a cooling crescendo of fried ice cream ($3.99) or an order of fried churros ($3.50).
The restaurant's sun-flavored walls and salsa-shaded chairs greet customers when they enter, followed by a somber rendition of “Be Our Guest” performed by the stools and glassware at the restaurant's full-service bar. Big parties are welcome at the Mexican eatery, where diners can wrangle some rays on the outdoor patio or opt to sit inside to protect meals from damaging tortilla burns.
