SOUTH; A South-of-the-Border, But Not Mexican restaurant in Pace/Milton

There is a new restaurant in Pace/Milton, there only a few months, and the flavors are south-of-the-border, without being Mexican. The owner is American, married to a Colombian woman, and she and her mother do the prepping and all the cooking, every day, and it is all fresh, fresh, fresh.


The tastes are fresh, too. Lots of vegetables, and fresh presentation.


The front of the menu:


This is what it looks like from the outside. It is in a small strip mall, just off highway 90:


This is what it looks like on the inside – very very clean and well kept:


They understand some of the food is a little strange for us, so they have explanations and photos on the walls:




I particularly love the designation for the ladies’ room 🙂


Now for the downside. AdventureMan and I each had different soups, both very different from one another and both delicious. Mine was more stewish, and his was more light. Then we split a main meal; it had like eight different items on the plate (we were so glad we decided to share!), things like roasted plantain and other veggies, pork, beer and rice. The downside is that we were so busy exclaiming and sampling that . . . I forgot to photograph the food. What was I thinking?????

  1. Yum! Love Cuban and Puerto Rican food. Bet you get a taste of some of that.

  2. Not so much, actually. We used to get more Cuban in the Tampa area, and then driving down to the Everglades and Keys, there were all these roadside set-ups with fabulous real-people South-of-the-border food, but in this area, this is more fried fish, hushpuppies, jambalaya, BBQ kind of food. The Pensacolians all say that the part of Florida is really Alabama . . . But every now and then, you see something Cuban or South-of-the-border, just now and then 🙂 Hope you’re making a list of the places you want to try 🙂
