Pan-Latin restaurant specializing in seafood.
Mitad del Mundo's menu blends cuisines from Cuba, Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador. Many of its specialties are seafood based: there's a sopa and coctel de camarones, an enormous seafood combo for two, and paella Valenciana (the traditional Spanish dish takes more than an hour to prepare). But there's also a whole section of the menu devoted to steak preparations such as churrasco and carne asada. Lechon asado, baby roast pork, is another Latin classic, tender and tasty, or try masas de puerco frito, chunks of fried pork loin. Appetizers include tostones, yuca con mojo, empanadas, and tamales. Owner Jimmy Espinoza is a frequent, cheerful presence in the dining room.
