Restaurant Opens in Oak Grove

We have a new business in Oak Grove! It's called, "MiCasita Panaderia Restarante". It's only been open a week.
Today, our family went there for lunch. It was really, really nice! Not at all what you'd expect to find in a tiny town like Oak Grove.

The restaurant is located in the old store building, just west of the stop sign. When I was a small boy, this was the "Plumlee and Callen" store. It was an old fashion store that sold everything from groceries to cattle feed.

These are the restaurant owners, Jane and Lasaro Hernandez. When you visit the establishment, be sure and read the interesting story about how Lasaro came to the US. He is a native Cuban, and came here in 1982 with 5 of his friends on a 6'x3' row boat! The full story is written on their menu. Not only is this a restaurant, but they make many types of caribbean style breads. They also have good chocolate chip/pecan cookies! Save room for one (or two) after your meal!

Two photos above is our family (or part of us) at the restaurant. We were missing one daughter and two son-in-laws. The business really looks nice on the inside. A lot of work has gone into making this a very comfortable place to eat.
This is their "Carne con Papa". Beef and Potatoes Marinated and Stewed in a robust tomato sauce dressed Cuban style!

"Carne Asada" (caribbean style).Marinated Grilled Steak.
Ooops, forgot the name of this one. Steak with grilled onions. Also a fried fruit, something similar to bananas.
"Mojarra Frita" (Guatemalan style). This was what I ate, very good! Tilapia, marinated and friend to crispy perfection.
You have your choice of white or yellow rice and Cuban or Central American Style Black Beans. I sampled both beans, both were good, but the Cuban style was my favorite.

There menu says, "We offer a warm, cozy home away from home atmosphere. Elegant dining in a clean, fresh, newly remodeled building in Oak Grove, AR with all meals made to order fresh daily."
They are open 7 days a week, 11:00am to 8:00pm.
Group rates for 10 or more people if a reservation is made 24 hours in advance of arrival.
Phone # is 870-749-2260.
