GREAT CUBAN FOOD...RIGHT HERE IN OAKLAND!!! FInally, my prayers have been answered. A friend told me about this place, so I decided to check it out. I showed up almost at closing time and to my surprise, I was greeted warmly by Sandra and Fermin, She runs the restaurant, he cooks heavenly authentic Cuban food. And I do mean authentic. I was born in Cuba, so I know what I'm talking about. Were it not for the fact that it would have been very unseemly I would have licked the plate clean when I finished my lechon asado. We're talking lechon the way my grandmother and mother did it. Dios mio, it was good. And the tostones....ahh, I could have eaten 3 more plates of them. Sheer pefection, with a little mojo sprinkled on top! They're open for dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I can't wait to go back again and introduce my friends to this little slice of Cuban heaven in the East Bay!
The margaritas are nice and tart!
