    i am in love with the december specials at hugo’s restaurant, and the best one i’ve tried yet is the south of the border casserole.

    a hearty blend of slow-cooked vegetables, spices, and (in my case) tofu, this dish has everything going for it. plus, it’s pretty big, and comes served with a giant mound of brown rice for the mixin’…

    South Of The Border Casserole: A stew of mushrooms, corn, mixed peppers, zucchini, garlic and cilantro with the addition of your choice of roasted vegetables or organic tofu cooked in a chili sauce made of nuts, seeds, plantains, garlic and spices. Topped with crispy potato pancakes croutons . Served with a side of brown rice. With roasted vegetables $12.50, With grilled organic tofu $16.00

    the dish consists of a hearty stew of mushrooms, corn, mixed peppers, zucchini, garlic, and cilantro with your choice of roasted vegetables or tofu cooked in a delicious and spicy chili sauce. as if that isn’t good enough, it’s topped with POTATO PANCAKE CROUTONS. i die. (beware: there are also grody meat options for this dish. be sure not to order those.)

    i think it’s safe to say that this my favorite special at hugo’s yet (and trust me, i’ve had a lot)! i went with the tofu option, and it was beyond scrumptious and filling. the stew/sauce/tofu filling was incredibly flavorful. sweet, tangy, spicy, and comforting…everything i could wish for in a casserole. the topping was the best part though…those potato pancake croutons are the stuff dreams are made of.

    today is december 12th, so that means you have approx 3 more weeks to try out this special. get to hugo’s fast and EAT IT. you won’t be sorry.
