Oh man. I've been waiting for EVER to try a Cuban sandwich. The only place I know of is at Portos...in Glendale. Great post as always!

Kirk

Hi Elmo - Thanks, there's another Cuban Restaurant post right around the corner....

Reid

Hi Kirk,

Interesting take on Cuban food. I haven't eaten anything like it since I was in Miami in the early '90s. I do enjoy yucca frittas as well as plantanos. Mmmm.

I used to enjoy a Cuban sandwich with Cuban coffee (a little too sweet) for lunch on most days.

Kirk

Hi Reid - I really don't think that this would compare with Cuban in Miami! But it's a nice Mom and Pop place, and we finally got around to it.

You might want to give Tropical Star a try, up on Balboa in the shopping center with Radio Shack and IHOP. It was recommended to me by a Miamian, who said it was more authentic than Andres.

That being said, there are some things at Andres I greatly enjoy. Ropa vieja is a good one. If you go back, make sure to try the Arroz Con Pollo, and the carne asada sandwich.

Also worth ordering as a side dish is Arroz Con Gandules.

Kirk

Hi JS - We're actually regulars at Tropical Star, we're in that Stripmall alot, because of Noble Chef - but have mostly stayed with the sandwiches there. Thanks for the rec - have you tried Tazablanca yet?

Cara

My intoduction to Cuban food, while not in Cuba, was in Miami, Tampa, Ybor City and West PB Florida. They all had a great selection of Cuban restaurants (my favorite is Blanca's in Tampa). I fell in love with the cuisine! I was looking forward to a similar experience at Andres but did not find the food to be on the same level as the restaurants I went to in FL.

Kirk

Hi Cara - It would be very hard and somewhat unfair to compare the Cuban Food in Miami, with it's vibrant Cuban community, to San Diego. Almost like comparing the amazing Chinese Food in the San Gabriel Valley to the Chinese food in Miami, or the great sushi in LA to Atlanta(where I worked for over a year). That said, we think Andre's is not bad.

Emma

Andres has great food, at very very reasonable prices. I'm reading a post from three years ago (2005), and the prices are almost the same. I think we should all feel so great that we have this food here in San Diego!
Buen Provecho!
