Avanti Tackles the Mayans This Month in its World Tuesdays

You still haven't gone to Avanti Cafe's World Tuesdays, have you? Where $11.50 gets you a three-course meal of international cuisine, each following a monthly theme? I went yesterday and enjoyed a thick bread soup, plantain croquettes
fried with God's love and accompanied by coconut rice and the first guacamole I've ever enjoyed IN MY LIFE, and topped it with a chilled yam and orange pudding. For February, Avanti is doing it like the Mayans did–or, rather, their descendents. The rest of the month:

 Veronica's YUCATAN, Mexico
Tuesday, February 10
Lime Soup
Veggie skewers w/ papaya tomatillo sauce
Papaya almond cake

Bart's SAN BARTOLO, Guatamala
Tuesday, February 17
Corn N Onion Soup
Chili Relleno Casserole
Champurado Chocolate Coffee Drink

Veronica's TAZUMAL, El Salvador
Tuesday, February 24
Red kidney Bean Soup
Maria Luisa Cake

My offer still stands: see me at one of these, and the meal is on me. No winners last month, alas!
