Located in the Ohio City neighborhood in Cleveland, Johnny Mango is self-described as, “Latin American food and fresh juice bar offering vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free friendly cuisine.” And I might add, “It is. And its damn good.”
First, if you aren’t familiar, Ohio City is an historic and hip neighborhood. Your traditional Cleveland-style architecture of the by-gone heyday of industrialization- gentrified and non-gentrified all at the same time. Johnny Mango is so “neighborhood-y.” But, back to the food.
Take a gander at their menu. If you can’t find something that sounds good to you, you must be some kind of droid. Here’s what we ordered:
Fried Tofu is just that, I found out later that the sauce that accompanies these is not vegan so be sure to specify when ordering. Happy Beans on the other hand, are the daily special of beans. This day happened to give us warm, white-bean goodness, full of flavor and happiness. Ooey, gooey happiness.
