Inside of, the minuscule house shows off 3 West Texas-themed photos courtesy of the historic museum and a very simple general glance. In point, dependent off the décor and title, one particular may well feel the establishment is just a further steakhouse, supplying Midlanders the same ole’ pile of meat like usually. Nonetheless, the menu tells a diverse story.

“At the time, I was undertaking MMA and BJJ, but I required a occupation to spend my charges,” Eddie Canepa joked. “I received a job (in Milan) in the kitchen area just to clean the dishes component time.

Sizzling bites

You might imagine placing Italian, Cuban, and American meals on the same menu would seem a very little odd, and I wouldn’t necessarily disagree, but for the Canepas, it is a way to showcase food from their respective cultures and if I’ve said it once I have explained it 100 situations, Midland requires the range.
