Cuban Sandwich Cafe

The bakery case here holds a nice selection of crispy treats, but the sandwiches are the main attraction. Start with pan con lechón and work your way around to the El Cubanito burger. Don't forsake the daily specials, such as arroz mariscos and fried sea bass.

Guantanamera Cuban Cuisine

Armed with a wealth of cherished family recipes for fresh, home-style Cuban cuisine, the menu's opening salvo may be Masas fritas, or chunks of mojo criollo-marinated pork fried in lard, golden outside and succulent within. Lechon asado gets the same marinade and hours in a slow oven until it gets so tender it melts in your mouth. Pollo al horno is a marinated chicken leg quarter that is roasted with onion and red bell peppers, turning it moist and juicy.
