Mojito's is on the square in old Norcross. It's a a very quaint location that they have turned into a very hip atmosphere. The place was buzzing with people. Stephanie and Bob joined me to try out a few dishes.
The menu has two very strong themes: plaintains and frying. Even better, they fry plantains. I really think they should call the place Plantains R Us. So, of course, I tried the fried plantain pancakes along with some empanadas. I was curious to see how they fried the pancakes. They seem to have first grilled the pancakes and then fried them. They were like small versions of my banana pancakes, with slices of plantains in the middle, but fried. Quite frankly, they were a little tough and I don't think that I would order that one again. The empanadas were very good. The crust was excellent, not too surprising given their penchant for frying. The fillings were quite good and the hot sauce was certifiably hot. Stephanie and Bob also concentrated on small dishes rather than the entrees. Their most unusual dish was a yucca preparation. I didn't try it but it looked fascinating. Desert plants can be incredibly juicy.
