My Cuban-American girlfiend is passionate about her country's food and she is nearly always disappointed by our local joints.
Not so with Perla Del Caribe on 8023 Beverly Blvd (nr Fairfax).
Unbelievable homestyle tostones, fried yucca, pork and especially our fav -- Cuban spicy ox tail (rabo encendido).
I hate sharing my food secrets for fear of having them over-run. But this is so special and so empty I am afraid of losing it. Go! enjoy!
