Yummy dinner at Mari Luna – now serving brunch.

Yes, I know yummy is a not a very professional word for a restaurant review although it describes it well. It is no secret that my husband and I dine regularly at both Mari Luna Mexican and Mari Luna Latin and are pleased to live close to both locations.

So let me tell you what was so yummy. It was one of Mari Luna Latin's house specials, Skate Wine Cangrejo which comes with lump crab meat in a citrus butter ($24). The portion was generous. I had eaten 1/3 of it when I decided to photograph it for this commentary. Every once in awhile your choice of food really hits the spot and this was this evening and this was the dish. I opted for a side Caesar salad and the garlic mashed potatoes which comes with the entrée


It was three weeks ago that I notice an appetizer on the Mari Luna Latin menu, crab claws in a tomato, lime, garlic sauce with toasted bread and lump crab meat ($10). I asked my husband if he want to share and he had no interest. Off course, when the dish arrived the husband ate half the appetizer and has ordered it every Friday night since. Does your significant other do this to you as mine does, or am I the only one?
