My mom and I try to have lunch together at least every other week. Back in April, she had a gift certificate to a Colombian place called Rincón Montañero, so we headed over to try it out, and we both loved it!
Rincón Montañero is located on South Semoran Boulevard in between Colonial Drive and Lake Underhill Road (closer to Lake Underhill) in a shopping plaza with a Sonic on the corner. I will admit, this is the type of plaza I wouldn’t really be drawn to, if not for having the gift certificate. A don’t-judge-a-book-by-it’s-cover-situation I suppose…
It was lunch time, I don’t remember… maybe around 12:30pm. The booths across from where we were sat were all full, however, not much else in the restaurant. A gentleman greeted us quickly, brought out our drinks, and got our orders in. My mom read me the inside cover of the menu, which gives a little bit about the restaurant. It’s in Spanish, and while I speak and understand a little, not enough for this one, so my mom translated it for me. While we waited for our food, we enjoyed some cheese empanadas.
Shortly after we sat, the table across from us left, and the table was cleaned. I took this picture not for the booth though, but for the serene painting hanging above it. There were several paintings around the restaurant. They say so much!
We didn’t wait long for our food to come out. My mom and I both ordered the Filete Empanizado, or the breaded steak. It comes with rice, tostones and a salad, but I switched my salad out for the delicious red beans you see on top of my rice.
It was the perfect amount of food, so flavorful, or cooked just right!
There’s always room for dessert, right?! I had a cup of Cafe con Leche (coffee and milk), and a piece of tiramisu. My mom didn’t have any room left, so I enjoyed this all by myself – was soooo good! Wish I had both of these right now!
Originally, we came to this restaurant because of a Restaurant.com gift certificate, but sadly, this restaurant does not accept these anymore. Beware if you are shopping gift certificates because it is still available for purchase on there!
The bill was a little higher than we were expecting to pay because of this mix up, and at regular price, the menu is a bit higher than our normal lunch dates – about $50. We didn’t mind though! The food was sooo delicious, the service was quick, and the server and staff were super friendly. We are looking forward to going back!

Looks like a yummy lunch! Thanks for sharing at Friday Frenzy Link Party 🙂 XOXO
Oh yes, it was. I am looking forward to going back.
Were you able to make it back there in the last year? Hopefully, they have survived. It’s to be pleasantly surprised when you’re not really expecting it.
Sadly, I have no been back since this lunch with my mom. We had a special coupon for this so my mom drove over to my side of town for this lunch date, but normally I drive over to her side of town (about 45 minutes to an hour from me) so she doesn’t have to drive that far. But I keep thinking about it. I would like to go back. A quick Google search says they are still open so I will need to make it a priority to visit soon. The food was delicious, and I love little hole in the wall places like this.
