The Scoop: From cuisine to atmosphere, Rumba Café provides a truly immersive Latin American experience right in the heart of Adams Morgan. Restaurant owner and executive chef, Gustavo, has traveled extensively through Central and South America and has brought back dishes and decor from countries such as Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela just to name a few. The menu offers a wide selection of traditional Latin American dishes in the form of tapas so that you can experiment with foods and flavors, fulfilling the restaurant’s goal of introducing people to new dishes. House favorites include the Patacon Rumba - a dish with smashed fried green plantains, steak, and cilantro mayonnaise - and the Mofongo de Platano con Mariscos - a Puerto Rican specialty with smashed plantains and seafood. Rumba Café provides an excellent happy hour with great deals on tapas as well as fun cocktails and a popular brunch on weekends. If the food isn't enough to convince you to visit Rumba Café, check out their great music offerings (Thursday night salsa and Tango Tuesday)!
