Mojito’s sits directly in the heart of downtown Norcross where this city was built over a century ago. Downtown Norcross has many trendy restaurants and specialty stores making it an ideal area to stroll through on a sunny day. Since this area is quite small, finding a parking spot can be difficult so expect to make a couple of U-turns and fight for an open spot. Once you’ve step into Mojito’s, you’ll quickly find out that this restaurant is relative small making it pretty hard to accommodate a large party when it gets really packed (which it normally does). You’ll soon quickly forget about your personal bubble though when you’re overwhelmed with delicious Cuban food and the wonderful live music.
You can’t go to restaurant called Mojito’s without trying out their mojito’s. These are made fresh to order and you can actually hear them pounding the mint leaves behind the bar. I don’t normally drink this but OH MY GAWD, it just taste so good that I couldn’t remove my lips from drinking this delicious nectar. It finally made sense on where they got their restaurant name from.
One of their house special is the classic paella. The yellow rice is slowly cook in fish broth along with all sorts of seafood, chicken, and pork. I rarely cry but this has got to be one of the best Cuban food I have ever had and I almost shed a single tear for. Don’t let the menu deceive you, even though it says it’s a serving for 1, it can actually feed up to 3 to 4 people easily.
In addition to our paella, we opted for the churrasco steak and chorizo on the side for 6 more bucks. The steak was tender and juicy while the chorizo was salty and undeniably flavorful.
