Laying sole claim to Peruvian and Puerto Rican service in the Springs, Sabores is a welcome departure from the abundance of Tex-Mex, with true, vibrant flavors of South America and the Caribbean. Everything from ceviche and seafood with yucca fries to pork and plantains.
It's the Springs' only Peruvian outfit, presenting a few Puerto Rican dishes as well. Expect interesting accents like cinnamon and cumin creeping into the chicken fried rice, and cloves appearing in a sweet Peruvian iced-tea-like corn drink called chichi morada. The carne frita con mofongo, fried pork hunks with mashed plantains in a garlic sauce, is a go-for item, as is the papa rellena: ground beef, raisins, chunks of hard-boiled eggs and spices wrapped with fluffy mashed potatoes, dusted with flour and fried into a ball of something like shepherd's pie.
