¡Ay caramba! No, this is not another Simpsons re-run. These words just come to mind after enjoying an excellent meal at restaurant Caramba. Whether you are looking for a location where you can enjoy a fantastic dinner or a romantic setting where you can bring the person you have been stalking for months on end, Caramba is the place to be. A well-known Latin maxim says, “in matters of taste there can be no disputes”. In other words, I can safely state that the pickiest person will find an abundance of flavorsome dishes and ass-kicking cocktails.
My all-time favorites on their menu are the frozen margaritas and the guacamole dip accompanied by freshly baked tortilla chips. These two combined are an amazing ice-breaker. What can be more disarming than ruining your favorite white shirt with some delightful green guacamole while sipping on a well-balanced tequila infused cocktail? Clumsy drunk is the new hip!
In conclusion, my favorite main course is “mariscos con salsa de pimiento.” Yes, I am fluent in several languages. No, Spanish is not one of them. This main course undoubtedly became one of the non-negotiable reasons to live. The sauce’s infinite depth of creaminess made it difficult for me to keep my eyes open while enjoying this meal.
The chefs artistically combine various fresh ingredients and transform them into amazing dishes. How about a gift to yourself? Be selfish today and indulge in this Mexican feast. This treat in the heart of Antwerp needs to be discovered.
