Yesterday was my (Ryan's) birthday—so we decided to try the brand new brick and mortar restaurant of our recent favorite food truck, Cuban Gypsy Pantry. Their brand new store just opened up in a prime location across from Marion Square right in the middle of town. Owner and chef Will Vivas brings very very delicious classic dishes straight from Cuba with some of the best Cuban sandwiches, empanadas, and "green fries" we have ever tasted. The space itself transports me straight to the Cuban coast with incredible Latin music blasting over the speakers, a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and it really takes you somewhere besides being in the middle of the Southeast United States when you take a bite of his food. I really is one of the best casual dining experiences we've had yet.
