Baracoa embarrassment

Rafi | Mar 25, 2002 11:41 AM

Okay, I'll admit it, I was wrong.

Went for lunch again at Baracoa in Atwater yesterday with none other than Chowhound's own Vanessa On The Town. I'd previously waxed poetic about the ropa vieja, which I swore up and down on this board was made from pork. Well, it's beef. Don't know why I had pork on the brain. But there you go. Vanessa seemed to enjoy watching me eat cow, as it were -- now you all get to smirk at me, too. The good news is: the ropa vieja was as good as I remembered. Er, right Vanessa?
They also now serve a wonderful smoky garbanzo bean dish, which I cautiously recommend...
