Mundos Latin Kitchen and Bar brings flavors from 10 Latin American countries to Ozark, Missouri. Victor Briceno opened the restaurant this past December, and he says certain dishes have already proved popular among customers.

Jump on the bandwagon and try the mofongo, a Puerto Rican dish highlighting mashed fried plantains, or the Peruvian lomo saltado, a stir-fry that combines marinated strips of sirloin with bell peppers, red onion, tomatoes and french fries. The latter is drizzled with Mundos’ signature cilantro sauce, which adds a twist to the traditional recipe.

Briceno also gets creative with seafood, serving jícama tacos – thinly sliced jícama that’s cooked until pliable like a tortilla – topped with crispy coconut shrimp.
