These were delicious and I don't know if they come with your order when you order takeout or delivery, but if it doesn't make sure you go back when in-person dining is back!

This is the Jalea ($32). It is a mountain of fried squid, shrimp, and fish. Then, it is topped with onions, mussels, and crab. How can you go wrong with fried food? Definitely not with this food. I am pretty sure I'd want to get something more interesting next time, but this is a dish that can definitely please any eater.

This is the Chaufa de Pina - pineapple fried rice ($19). I really wanted ceviche, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices in life. This was also a very safe dish. It is served in a pineapple. It was pretty good - fried rice with seafood and pineapple. I wish that they would have cut up the half of a pineapple it was served in, though. But, they just took it away when we finished and said they don't cut it again. I guess I get it from a department of health standpoint, but from a food waste standpoint, it made me sad.

All in all, I know what was ordered wasn't a good representative of what Riko has to offer, but if you're ordering in and wanting to please the pickiest of eaters, definitely go for what we ordered!

Next time, I am definitely going to get that ceviche.

I did get a red sangria. It was fine, but I don't know if I would order it again in the future, to be honest, but Riko does have a pretty good happy hour selection for those of you who work nearby.
