    Mi Patria - Des Moines diners

    Found a gem last night.

    Mi Patria is an Ecuadorian restaurant in the strip mall next to Michael's on 22nd street (behind Hooters). If you like to try things you've never had before I highly recommend the place.

    It's just a little hole in the wall (like any family run Mexican place), but the food is phenomenal and unlike anything I've ever had before.

    Almost all of the meals come with fried plantains and toasted corn.

    The gf and I will definitely be going back. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked awesome.

    Liked this place so much so I ate there again last night. I'm going to just go down the menu and eat everything on it. The food is fantastic.
