It’s been quiet on the food front lately. And I've been distracted with other assignments. So, it was nice to hear from a reader who tipped me off to a new island eatery.
Juan Carlos Vargas and wife Yolanda, along with Juan Canada and his wife Maritza, have opened Los Molcas at 6316 Stewart Road.
The eatery, which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, specializes in Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican and seafood cuisine.
Los Molcas is working to obtain a liquor license, which means margaritas are imminent.
Here’s what the helpful reader had to say:
“It’s the absolute freshest food I’ve had outside of Mexico, more like Mexican cuisine than Mexican food,” the reader emailed. “They are very gracious folks who deserve to be spotlighted.”
On some weekends, there’s live entertainment at Los Molcas. Juan Vargas sometimes sings at the restaurant, which also offers karaoke.
Has anyone else been to Los Molcas? Do you plan to give it a try?
And has anyone else tried any new restaurants lately they’d like to recommend?
