Literary accents can be seen (and read) all over the place at Loba because of owner Jessica Sanchez’s love of reading and her limited decorating budget. For instance, a vegetarian entrée featuring farro piccolo, succotash, radishes, squash blossoms, eggs, and zucchini is cleverly called "Orwell’s Dystopia." And checks are delivered inside novels. Such quirky touches give the 50-seat eatery a distinct vibe, and the Latin- and Southern-influenced cuisine has a voice of its own too. Case in point: the whole-fish dish listed on the menu. It was red snapper during this reviewer's visit, but regardless of the day's catch, the fish is marinated in lemon, lime, salt, and pepper and boiled or fried depending upon preference. Then it's spiked with sorrel, arugula, lemon, orange, and — the best part — pink guava. Loba's burger is a hefty main for one person. Nestled into a sliced house bun is a patty made with premium beef and brisket from Larry Kline Wholesale Meats in Deerfield Beach, along with bacon, a fried egg, Havarti cheese, and onion marmalade. Though messy, the beef is incredibly juicy, and the gooey egg is a welcome addition.
