Cuban Sandwich Cafe

CaribbeanNorthUnder $10 First Plates 

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

Caribbean, Deli/Sandwich Shop, South AmericanSouth$10-$25

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.

Habana Restaurant

CaribbeanSouth Congress and South First$10-$25

Rising from the ashes of a fire, Habana SoCo has returned bigger and stronger. The lechon asado is a must, as is the Cuban sandwich with its lighter bite, and there are lots of appetizers to go with the drinks.

Isla

CaribbeanDowntown$25-$40

It's true that the roti here isn't the rolled version typically served in the West Indies. Here it is flat, piled with meat or vegetables. The curried lamb and chicken are both lavished with the kind of spice that clings to the cheeks.

Texas Embassy

Burger Joint, Caribbean, Southern/Down-Home, Tex-MexDowntown$10-$25

Thanks to its previous incarnation as a Cuban restaurant, this sports bar serves both burgers and posole. Also, try chicken-fried steak, wings, or Cuban nachos while you catch a game on TV.
