Authentic Cubano- Cafecito

guttergourmet | Feb 3, 2009 03:38 AM

After my disappointing burger at Royale next door, I went back to Ave C to seek redemption at Cafecito. The croquetas de jamon were excellent, as good as I've had in Miami or from my Cuban mother-in-law. The cubano was very good, authentic ingredients and proportions, nicely grilled with plaintain chips on the side. I've had better cubanos but this one was very respectable. Has anyone tried their fritas (mini-Cuban style burgers)?
