My fiancé and I brought our baby girl to a daytime kids' event at the Rumba Room a few weeks ago. Located on South Main, this nightclub hotspot is a perfect place to show off your Latin dance skills or to pick up some new ones. What I didn't know was that the Rumba Room kitchen staff have some tasty skills of their own.
The dancing was working up our appetites. The bar menu features classics like nachos and wings in 14 different flavors (including Red Hot), and there are also a few Latin-themed items, like the Baja Shrimp Tacos and Cuban Sandwich.
If you are looking to load up on carbs (you know, for those extra-fast dance moves), the Rumba Fries are your best option. These fries are not going to earn you any health points, but if you want the ultimate indulgent bar-food snack, these have got you covered — crispy French fries smothered in two kinds melted cheese, pico de gallo, bacon, green onions, and with your choice of ground beef, chicken, or veggies.
The fries are served piping hot with sides of ranch dressing and ketchup. You should plan on sticking around for that extra round or two on the dance floor, just to avoid this treat going straight to your hips. —
