With three locations across this island, Mi Tierrita in Brentwood envokes a Columbian feast. The rotisserie and grill at the front of the restaurant are pumping out chicken, steak and fish dishes galore; most served over heaping mounds of rice with sides such as plantains, avocado, egg and more. The mood is festive (there’s a full bar with frozen drinks and South American favorites) and the mostly spanish speaking staff and clientele are certainly appreciative of this taste of home. If heaping mounds of piping hot foods with excellent sides is your thing, then this is your new spot.
