What's Cooking?

your lunch looked delicious I don't think I've ever tried cuban cuisine.


This makes me miss my college days in San Jose when I lived a couple blocks from a great fish and chips place, 2 decent Mexican places, a quirky sandwich shop, great donut shop (the local beat cops used to help themselves!), cool Mexican market, decent Ethiopian, and a wonderful Cuban restaurant. LOVED the Cuban food!


I had Cuban food once in LA I was kind of disappointed I was expecting WOW factor but got a womp womp womp. I think I ordered the same dish you had but the meat looked processed it was too perfect.


Interesting post. Last time I was in Vegas, I was with my whole family so there was no venturing off the strip. The green tinged baloney was past its days of service. ICK!
I'm curious though, if the lunch was lukewarm, why didn't you send it back and let them re-heat it? Its you're hard earned money you are spending on their food.


I LUUUUVVVVV Luv-It Custard. So much that I've been trying to find a good frozen custard shop in San Diego. It narrowly beats gelato in Italy.

Luv-it is in a seedy part of town though (roll up them windows when driving over there). Pretty close to Olympic Gardens.

Speaking of Strip Clubs, try Treasures. It's a Steak House and strip club. hahha. Really good steaks though....


Hi Kat - I hope your able to sample Cuban cuisine one of these days....

Hi Jan - Now that's some variety!

Hi Billy - This was a nice home style dish.

Hi Stephen - You know with ethnic cuisine you're not familiar with, and in small mom and pop places like these, I'll defer to what the kitchen makes....from what I've read, it seems that this dish is not served piping hot. That's the way you learn the nuances..... Otherwise you become the "I don't want my mapo tofu spicy...." kind of person. Plus the place was totally slammed when my food arrived.

Hi Denver - Luv it was much less eggy and dense than the stuff I had in Madison and Chicago, which was good.....I guess we just weren't "LUV'IN IT!" ;o)
