Once you taste Rosi's cooking, you'll understand why there's always a steady flow of people dining at her soda. She's not messing around when it comes to jazzing up simple ingredients; fresh fish rubbed with herbs, black beans flavored with red bell pepper, cilantro and celery, and white rice mixed with onions.
But before any zesty beans or homemade green salsa take over your palate, drink a fresh fruit smoothie, $1.80, blended with papaya, banana and pineapple. Let the sweetness soak into your tongue as you watch Rosi shake her hips around in the kitchen, adding her funky flare to your fish filet casado, $6, with steamed veggies, a mini-mountain of onion-flavored rice, and seasoned beans. And make sure you smile on the way out — you'll be seeing her around.
It doesn't take much looking to find Rosi dancing around to her favorite reggae songs, since she's got her bright pink chairs and checkerboard tablecloths right on Via Guiones Street.
Rosi and her smiling staff laugh with each other behind the counter, adding to the carefreeness you'll feel when you stop in.
