As the world continues to become more interconnected, Latin cuisine has become increasingly popular. This fusion style of cooking combines the best of local ingredients with global influences to create unique and delicious dishes. Tostones, for example, are a popular dish that originated in Africa. They are made by flattening and frying green plantains. Rice also became more popular with the arrival of Chinese immigrants. And tortillas in Cuba have more in common with those from Spain than Mexico, they are simple egg omelets rather than flour or corn-based. Being near water also means that seafood is often used in Latin cuisine, as seen in the popular Peruvian dish ceviche. Other popular dishes include pernil (roast pork) and stroganoff stews with chicken or beef, which are popular in Cuba and Brazil respectively. Latin cuisine truly has something for everyone and individually-packaged Latin meals are sure to satisfy the unique palates of all of your guests.
Don’t confuse Latin cuisines like Cuban, Peruvian or Brazilian with Mexican! While they may share a lot of similarities including ingredients and even the names of some dishes, their style of preparation and flavor profile is different. Mexican tends to put an emphasis on spice and peppers while Latin cuisine has less spice. Frequently, even sides like rice and beans will be cooked in pork fat or chicken stock so be on the lookout for your vegans and vegetarians!
When it comes to finding the most popular dishes at a restaurant, it really varies based on what cuisine the establishment specializes in. For example, some of Cuba's most beloved dishes include pernil (a slow-roasted pork dish) and beef stew. If you're in Peru, pollo a la brasa (rotisserie chicken) and lomo saltado (stir-fried steak with onions and fries) are two of the nation's favorites. And in Brazil, stroganoff, stews, and rotisserie meats are all excellent choices.
Even though the restaurant will individually package each meal, we still recommend ordering a few extra meals! You never know when someone might show up unexpectedly at the office. With our group order poll, you can easily add extra meals at checkout before placing your order.
