You might have been hoping to take a tropical vacation at some point this summer. Instead, you spent a lot of effort and time trying to make the perfect smoothie bowl, which left you with a lot of chia seeds and no money. It’s OK—just head to Bongos, a colorful renovated gas station on Green Lake where the very fake (but still convincing) beach patio is covered in sand. Grab your friends (and their dogs) after a lap around the lake and work your way through Bongos’ delicious Caribbean menu, from excellent spicy shrimp with Cuban rice and beans to slow-cooked pork sandwiches that rival Un Bien’s. Make sure the tostones with cilantro sauce hit the table, too.
