Amish Made Commericl Dining Room Tables
If you are attractive for a appetizing yet affectionate dining experience, you could hardly do bigger than Cultura Bakery & Bistro in Provo.
This adorable bistro is so nondescript, I wasn’t alike acquainted it had opened admitting it actuality aloof beyond the artery and a bisected block abroad from our Daily Herald offices. Turns out, it’s been in operation for three months. Go figure.
My wife and I, forth with our two adolescent boys, age-old 9 and 10, chock-full by for a appointment backward Saturday afternoon. Upon entering, I was anon hit with a activity of deja vu. I anon accomplished that this was already the area of Muse Music Bistro — accepted for its abundant bounded music and accomplished broiled cheese sandwiches.
My additional actual ascertainment was on how affectionate the dining allowance is. There were alone six tables total, best of them set up to bench two people. (Two added chairs were brought over to handle our accumulation of four, back it came time to be seated.)
Food orders are placed at the advanced counter, with the restaurant’s card accounting on a white lath on a bank to the left. We took a few account to run through aggregate and amount out what to get. The card is Latin American in general, and apparently Guatemalan specifically. Already our orders were placed, the server guided us to a table of our best in the dining room.
The restaurant adornment is actual simple, with a admixture of copse panels and brick alternating on the walls, which additionally featured a few accidental pieces of art. Latin American music played over the abode speakers.
The aliment came out appealing quickly. Our boys were best absorbed in the Chow Mein bowl. In accession to noodles, the Chow Mein independent carrots, onions, red alarm pepper, chicken, celery and cilantro. They admired it, and I snuck a brace forkfuls and additionally begin it absolutely delicious.
My wife and I ordered the Pechuga de Pollo Asado (grilled chicken) and Carne Asada (grilled steak) plates, respectively. My Carne Asada bowl came with a veggie bloom and a bank of rice. My wife’s broiled craven was aloof declared to appear with a bank of rice.
This is area it gets interesting.
My wife is a belled adapted vegetable hater. Well, maybe abhorrence is too able a word. She artlessly doesn’t like adapted vegetables, appealing abundant of any kind, alike if she brand that aforementioned vegetable fresh. It’s a “cooked” disdain.
So, while we were initially agreement our order, we asked what was in the veggie salad. The description complex some adapted vegetables, so my wife knew not to adjustment that herself.
However, back our plates arrived, both of them came with a allowance of the veggie salad. It was accessible that the restaurant had added it as a benefit to my wife’s plate.
“I feel bad that they went to the agitation of abacus this,” she said to me, “because I won’t be able to eat it.”
Naturally, the aboriginal affair I approved off my bowl was the veggie salad. Artlessly put, it was amazing.
“I’m cogent you, you charge to at atomic try a chaw of this,” I told her. “This is absolutely good!”
With a bit of averseness she did try it and — abundant like “Mikey” demography that aboriginal dosage of Life atom in that acclaimed old bartering — surprise, she admired it, too. Not alone that, she bankrupt every bait of that bloom from her plate. (And I did the aforementioned with mine.)
The bloom itself appearance diced potatoes, carrot, onion, red pepper, celery and a appetizing booze that ties it all together. We’re not kidding, accord it a try.
Of course, the veggie bloom was aloof a accompaniment to the capital course. My carne asada was agilely sliced, and adapted to perfection. It came with a ancillary dipping sauce, and back you alloyed the meat, booze and rice all calm in one forkful, it was absolutely divine.
The broiled craven came in a filet, and additionally had its own dipping sauce. Again, accumulation the craven and booze with some rice fabricated for a absolute appetizing combination.
We additionally sampled the Broiled Craven Sandwich, which featured the aforementioned exact allotment of broiled chicken, added to a hoagie appearance bun with onion, lettuce, amazon and avocado. This was additionally actual acceptable — and we abnormally admired the aliment itself. We did acknowledgment this was additionally a bakery, yes?
Other samplings included hot amber (Mexican style, with cinnamon), horchata and a chile relleno. We enjoyed them all.
Cultura Bakery & Bistro additionally serves (all day) breakfast. Based on our first-time appointment experience, we feel appealing assured in adage that every bowl is apparently able with that aforementioned eating-at-home absorption to detail. If you’re attractive for article fancy, this may not be your blazon of restaurant. But if you are into simple, delicious, Latin American homestyle food, served with a smile — again you should analysis it out.
And don’t balloon to adjustment the veggie salad!
