Columbia Restaurant Ybor

Dined at the fabled Columbia Restaurant this weekend. I hadn't been there in a few years. The last time I very much enjoyed their Paella and I think we had a great Pompano dish.

This time however, it was like awful diner food. First I had Croquetas y Croquetas, which were Devil Crab Croquettes and Chicken Croquettes. Hard little balls that consisted of a lot of bread crumbs and were over cooked. Had to use a lot of hot sauce. The proprietary bottle of hot sauce was very good, as was their house wine, Don Cesar, I think.

The Roast Pork "A La Cubana" was a real disappointment, dry and over sauced with thick "goopy" gravy.
