Where to Go on Valentine’s Day in Bergen County

Why not enjoy Valentine's Day dinner at one of Bergen County's more interesting dining spots?

Mambo Tea House is a Cuban restaurant and Asian tea lounge, located in the heart of downtown Rutherford, New Jersey's bustling "Restaurant Row".

The inspiration for Mambo Tea House emerged from the Caribbean and Chinese cultural combination of the husband and wife team who own and operate this popular restaurant.

Mambo specializes in authentic Cuban cuisine as well as other popular Latin dishes from Spain, Argentina, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. Some of their signature dishes include RopaVieja, Paella, Churrasco, and Mofongo.

Equally impressive are their wide selection of loose-leaf teas in full teapot service.

The “Combo at the Mambo” can also be experienced through the eclectic décor, which includes bamboo wood floors, floral and Cuban cigar wallpapers, wooden ceiling fans painted with hibiscus flowers, and a statue of a Buddha centered in the backroom.This is a comfortable pleasant environment for a romantic Valentine's dinner for two or a large party.

If you're looking for a recommendation, we suggest you try the RopaVieja, a traditional Cuban dish that is a Mambo Tea House signature dish. It is slowly cooked shredded beef in a Cuban Creole sauce served with rice and beans.

Mambo Tea House is a BYOB establishment and the owners encourage you to bring in your favorite bottle of wine, beer or other liquor. They'll convert your bottle into Sangria, Classic Mojitos, Passionfruit Mojitos, Guava Mojitos or Pina Coladas.
