Price Scale

This unassuming oasis of Cuban cuisine is hard to find but worth the effort. Try the lechón asado (roasted pork), which delights with its crisped, bacon-like skin and, like most of the entrées, comes with luscious black beans and rice and lightly sweet, thick slices of plantain. Other homespun favorites include ropa vieja (shredded beef), beef picadillo (ground beef, tomato, and spices), and red snapper with shrimp in a garlicky mojo. Prices are reasonable: the vast majority of entrées range from $9.95 to $16.95, unless you go for the seafood paella for two ($58.95; allow 45 minutes cooking time).
