Rana Loca - Winston Salem

Mums chicken with rice and black beans

This evening we ate at a restaurant called Rana Loca in Winston Salem on the corner of 4th and Spruce street it features Authentic Latin Cuisine my friends friend mentioned it to me she has a Cuban Dad and Spanish Mum and she said it was good. So of we went!, overall I really liked the place Winston Salem has been working really hard in the last few years to improve the downtown area, it now has upscale apartments, coffee shops and an independent cinema.

My hubby got Masita's a yummy pork dish with smashed plantains on the bottom.

I got fish tacos I have been meaning to eat these for ages and was not disappointed

My Dad got Swordfish and I learnt from the chef that dark parts of flesh is normal where the blood runs through as I was worried about a dark part, he he silly me

Empanadas ! so happy I found them right here where I live, the chef is from Miami so really gets this dish!
Crab cakes, nice and spicy with chopped Jalopeno

The Chef was lovely and was more than happy to answer my questions he also showed us what Yuca looks like and gave a fantastic tip he says he freezes it then adds directly to the fryer this makes it puff out and becomes nice and soft in the center.
