Some people look to Subway as a quick and cheap lunchtime option, while others, to become a worldwide celebrity just because they used to be hideously fat. Using Subway as a stepping stone to true restaurateurism, Fuego Mundo.
Started by a former Subway franchise owner sick of people coming in and asking for the Jared look, Fuego's dishing health-conscious Latin meals from its wood-fire-grill-equipped open kitchen in a dark wood table'd, more-modern-than-traditional dining room, decked with South American wall art and fake toucans under off-kilter ceiling panels that look like ramps, a clever loophole conceived after getting denied a stairway to heaven permit. On the healthy tip, everything's dairy and wheat-free, with sides and light starters including fried plantain Fuego Chips, baked Beef Empanadas, and Yucca Fries w/ homemade garlic dip; lunch specials include the Grilled Pita Meal (stuffed w/ steak, chicken, fish, or tofu, served w/ chips) or the Plate of Sides & Salad, in three options: Latin (rice, black beans, sweet plantains), American (grilled corn & roasted potatoes), and the quinoa, black bean, & baked plantain Health Nut, which sounds boring, but is actually dynamite in the snack. Entrees each come with a side, and get marinated in a house recipe seasoning, from steak dishes (Sizzling Sirloin, Argentinean Skirt Steak, Glazed Lamb Chops), to Grilled Turkey Filet and Chicken Sausage, to wild-caught fish plates like Costa Rican Tilapia, Honey-Citrus Pepper Salmon, and Ginger Spiced Grouper, who actually wanted to bang Posh, but hey, that's life on the road.
For dessert, there's sweets like Mango Pie, a Guava Pastry Puff, and Mami's Dulce de Leche Cheesecake; drinks include ruby red house-made sangria, imported beers (Cuba's La Tropical, DR's Presidente, Costa Rica's Imperial), and natural quenchers like the Fresh Young Coconut, which you'll lustily drain the white insides of -- something conspiracy footlong theorists maintain also happened to Jared.
