Mango's Tropical Cafe: A Tourist Trap Revisited
The best part of the meal came in the form of the famous "Mango" Wings (8 Wings, $10.95). Eight, meaty pieces smothered in mango barbecue sauce arrives with a side of blue cheese dressing including modest chunks. The celery sticks are a little bonus. But not long after devouring the wings, with the sweet, yet spicy, taste still lingering, your taste buds are crying for more.
We chose the tilapia piccata ($20.95) and Mango's churrasco steak tacos ($18.95) as our entrees. The former is a filet of tilapia sautéed just right with tasteful garlic, white wine, lemon, and caper sauce. A generous serving of mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables as accompaniments were also welcome. The steak tacos were under-stuffed with superb-tasting churrasco. The two, slim soft tacos are served with soupy refried beans, yellow rice, sour cream, guacamole, and diced tomatoes.
Our suggestion: To best enjoy Mango's, sip on some drinks while chowing down on some of the best wings South Beach has to offer.
