Lechón Asado Plate: Slow roasted marinated pork, topped with sautéed onions, yuca frita, tostones and congrí ($8.25). Jugo de Guanábana: Guanábana Juice (Guanábana purée mixed with milk) to wash down the garlicky "mojito" sauce served over the yuca.
The food here is as authentic as one can find at any restaurante, fonda or cafetín in the Caribbean (Cuba or Puerto Rico) and South America (Colombia or Venezuela).
The flavors familiar, the textures and colors a lovely memory of good times and friendly, happy people, of beautiful places were food is more than just nourishment but is also poetry, family and fiesta.
Order extra yuca and tostones or you'll regret it later. And please have a café con leche. It is as creamy and delicious as they come. Buen Provecho!
