Suso's Latino Basket

Finally finishing up most of my coupons before the new year sets them free. Tonight it was at Suso's Latino Basket in Manchester. A little hard to find but worth the travel. They were having tapas tonight but we opted for dinner entrées and were not disappointed. Started with Mofongo de Camarón [$9] for an appetizer. Not the traditional mash but excellent flavor with lots of shrimp.

Three entrées, all very good, were Chimichurri Flank Steak [$13] with roasted potatoes and roasted peppers but not the usual green chimichurri sauce I am used to; a Zarzuela [$16] which was loaded with some nice fresh seafood and a sassy marinara-pernod broth and my Pernil [$11] over rice and beans. The pernil was a tad dry but great flavor.

Place was packed with many ordering tapas from the waiter's menu. This wasn't mentioned on arrival so I guess I have to go back. Service was excellent with not too long a wait for food which can be a pain when hungry [my usual state of being].
