I was so excited to go to Paseo Caribbean, not only because I'd heard the sandwiches were amazing, but because we were going to meet one of my favorite Internet friends and her husband!
Be advised that there is very limited seating at Paseo Caribbean in Fremont, and the line can get long. It's worth it, though! Mr. Monkey and I thought the Chinese plasticware was hilarious.
But even more hilarious were our new friends, the Scientists! Why do we not live in the same city?!
Cuban roast -- pork shoulder coated in Paseo marinade and slow-roasted ($8.50).
Midnight Cuban Press -- Cuban roast pork, sweet banana peppers, smoked ham, and Swiss cheese melted in a hot press ($8.95).
We simply couldn't get enough of the Scientists, so we extended our lunch date to an additional coffee date!
Caffe Vita was only a few steps away. The Northwest coffeehouse has eight locations, six of which are in Seattle.
Cookies and coffee were a sweet end to our double date. I love Ms. Scientist even though she has a pixelated face! Ha!
