Banana Cafe and Piano Bar

On a trip to eastern market this past Sunday, the babe and I stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant in Capital Hill. Maybe I've been living under a rock or I haven't been around the block enough but it sure seems like others were hip to this cafe and piano bar. The ambiance, fun, colorful and full of Latin charm. The food, flavorful and just straight up tasty. The Banana Cafe and piano bar  is a restaurant renowned for it Latin fusion of Cuban, Mexican and Puerto Rican cuisine. There is also a piano bar upstairs with a great happy hour and live music every night. Check out the pics to see what I mean.
Very  interesting menu art

The Appetizer :Ceviche, which in basically a seafood salad. It was so good and spicy. It didn't lack one bit of flavor and the seafood was plentiful.

My Meal: Marinated Pork with rice and cassava. This has to the most tender pork I have ever eaten. The flavors were simple amazing. Two thumbs up!

My  Robbie's Meal: Stuff plantain, rice and oysters. I liked his meal even more than I liked my own. Such a wonderful and unexpected mix of flavors. Each plantain bowl with filled with a different meat. One beef, one chicken and one shrimp and they all we just so good. The sauce that accompanied the oysters, made me a fan of oysters. It was creamy and buttery and tad bit spicy. 

So colorful and bright

Thought this was pretty cool
