I had a pretty good cubano for lunch here a while back and had wanted to return ever since. Had the opportunity last night. Tough decision on the menu as there are several things that sounded pretty good. I went with the oxtail, probably my most favored Cuban dish. Not this one, however. Long story short, it could've used another hour or two of braising, at least. Meat was quite tough & chewy, and near impossible to get off the bone. A real pain in the arse to eat, actually. Spicing was good, but still hard to enjoy it.

I'm not writing the place off entirely, as there are other things there that I think they pull off quite nicely (based on what I saw at other tables).
