GAINESVILLE -- We won't spend much time on this subject but it's BIG news nonetheless. Pollo Tropical is coming to the University of Florida.
OK, so it's not really big news to most of the people reading this, but to the guy writing this blog ... these are exciting times! I've lived in Gainesville for about two years now and one of the things I miss most about Miami and Broward counties is Pollo Tropical.
True story ... When I first moved to Miami from Alabama, Pollo Tropical was the first place at which I ate. It was also the first time I ever had a plantain. Like I said, pretty pointless blog post, but I'm sure there's a few UF grads living in South Florida who will appreciate this news.
