Mangos Caribbean Restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Ga. There known for serving authentic Caribbean food ( I would say leading more towards Jamaican) and very popular among college students, Georgia State University is literally down the street. I had Mangos years ago and their food was amazing, I remembered having the Oxtails ( when I ate meat) it was tender and Delicious. My roommate and I decided to get some lunch from Mangos the other day. Here was my food experience!!!
I ordered the Kingfish, the entree came with 3 sides: rice, cabbage and plaintains. The fish is fried and you can choose one of 5 sauces to have on the fish : escoveitch (pepper sauce), steam, brown stew, curry or butter sauce; I chose escoveitch sauce. So we ordered our food to go ( I had to wait 20 minutes for my food) and brought it back to the house. First of all the fish was slightly overcooked, it was chewy but still edible. What saved the fish was the escoveitch sauce. The sauce is very spicy and but still has great flavor( I could taste vinegar, salt, pepper etc). If you can not take heat I recommend not getting the sauce because it will slap the shit out of you ( literally). As for the sides the rice was under cooked ( a little firm in the middle) but both the cabbage and plantains were good enough. Overall I am very disappointed in the meal since the main components of the entree ( fish and rice) were not cooked perfectly, especially since I had to wait 20 minutes. I do not know what happened today.
In case you wanted to know my roommate got the chicken with brown stew with rice, cabbage and plantains as sides and she loved everything. So it was only my food they messed up :(.
