I had heard of Sergio’s* for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that I tried it for the first time. I’m not generally a huge fan of Cuban — there are other Latin America cuisines I prefer, as you can probably tell if you’ve been keeping up with my blog — but I would definitely go back. Aside from the modern interior ambiance — I was pretty impressed, if only I had taken a picture of it — the menu was fairly extensive!
At Sergio’s, I ordered a you-pick-two of sorts, and chose a yuca-like soup (topped with cheese) to start, followed by what the restaurant claimed to be the #1 Cuban sandwich in South Florida.
The soup was a bit on the bland side, which I was clearly forewarned about by my waitress, but I still enjoyed it for what it was. Each spoonful was just the right degree of warm and creamy when it made its way into my mouth! Overall, I’d rate the soup okay, maybe even fine.
Now about the Cuban sandwich… #1 in South Florida? Personally, I’m not so sure of that, but probably not. It wasn’t bad or anything. I just thought it was pretty ordinary, and could’ve even packed a bit more flavor or… perhaps some more pizzazz in terms of presentation. I’d give it an super average okay. Very much edible.
FYI, Sergio’s serves garlic bread as a complimentary appetizer for the table. And while there’s nothing extraordinary about it — if anything, it was the slightest bit dry — who can say no to garlic bread (or bread)?! Or even for that matter, “free” food?! No hands raised here… free food is always welcome in my book.
Anyhoo, I’m inclined to try something different off the menu the next time I return — again, if you’ve been following my culinary adventures, I’m sure you knew that already — but return I shall.
