Flan by the forkful at El Porton Cafe.
In this week's review, Charles Ferruzza discovered a righteous Cuban sandwich and had a dining companion mash-up the crab cakes and an avocado salad with outstanding results at El Porton Cafe in Johnson County. As for owner and chef Jose Garcia, Ferruzza explains why he'll have you hot under the collar:

Garcia's explanations of his dishes are passionate and alluring. I'd tasted the spicy beef concoction known as picadillo before but never heard it described with such wild abandon. The night I ordered it, Garcia delivered a poetic monologue, naming every sultry spice and piquant pepper. I wasn't sure whether I was expected to eat it or bathe in it.
