Yvonne Villgas and her husband Eddy Ortiz opened El Flamboyant over ten years ago in their now well-known mid-island location. Yvonne's parents were from Puerto Rico and her mother had a Latin food restaurant in Estate Profit for years. Yvonne learned everything she knows about cooking from her mother and sister and always wanted a place of her own. Now its Yvonne's turn to cook and serve coveted family recipes. "I love to cook," she says. "This is fun for me. I will do this for a long while. Love the compliments. Love what I do." At first she had a lot of patrons from Puerto Rico but now the locals come mostly for the seafood and Puerto Rican rice and beans! "We use only fresh vegetables and seasonings like aji dulce (sweet peppers), cilantro, and recao--"can't cook without them," Yvonne says. "My local patrons are crazy for stew beans with pumpkin!" El Flamboyant offers up a Caribbean, Latin, and Seafood menu. If you like fresh fish, lobster, conch, and shrimp, or chicken, steaks, and pork chops, you have to try the way they do it at El Flamboyant! The Shishkabob Booth is open Thursdays and Fridays during Happy Hour. Located mid-island between Centerline Road and the Highway on Route #663, they are open every day.
