Restaurant Mambi


Those who remember the long-gone Mid-City Cuban restaurant Garce's may recall how its array of pressed sandwiches went beyond the traditional Cuban. There's a similar menu and a similar feel at the new Mid-City Cuban lunch place Restaurant Mambi (320 S. Broad St., 827-5838). In addition to the Cuban sandwich, Mambi serves its "Uruguayan sandwich" with steak and ham and also makes pressed chicken sandwiches. The rest of the menu lists traditional dishes like yellow rice with chicken, fried pork with congri and steak with plantains.
