The husband and I stopped in at Mi Casa on Cottage Street today for lunch, and broke our low carb fast. It's a nice little place, not fancy, but homey and colorful, with indoor seating, a side door for take out parking, and four tables outside in the little garden leading in from the street, between the two buildings sandwiching it in. We split an order of crunchy, lovely tostones sprinkled with garlic oil ($1) to start, and then I had the Nachos Complete ($5) and he had the Cuban Sandwich ($4). The nachos were good, not incredible, but a good serving of nicely spiced, not too greasy meat, neon-yellow cheese food, and the usual suspects for toppings. The husband's cuban sandwich was great-- ham, swiss, pork, pickles, mayo, grilled to a nice temperature and not greasy at all. Very tasty. He thought that it could have been a little larger, but couldn't argue with the price for what we got. Drinks are just bottles of soda. I had a serving of rice pudding for dessert ($1.75), and it was very good-- creamy, cold, not gelatinous, and not too sweet.
They've got a couple of different starters, salad, soup, the nachos, the sandwich, and burritos that looked good from where we were sitting. They also have pernil, a pork shoulder entree, carne el asar, and some kind of stewed chicken, all with beans and rice, for entrees. They've also got daily specials. For dessert, there's coffee, tea, flan, and they were advertising fried ice cream as a special, but seemed to be out while we were there.
The owner, Patricia Gonzales, was working away in the back, and her two teenaged daughters were up front, taking orders and learning the new cash register. Very nice people, and they seemed to be doing a good business. The prices can't be beat, and it's definitely worth a visit.
