Place opened up in September.. A small little kitchen with a few tables, this place is turning out some serious Cuban Food.. All the food is lovingly prepared by this husband and wife team.. Everything is made in house.. Empanadas dough, pie dough, soups, desserts, and smoked chorizo. They have a rotating menu based on daily specials.. They have some stand byes like pernil everyday but, the soups and specials change daily..

Caldo gallego was really good.. Made with in house made smokey chorizo.. Chef was nice enough to split and order between the three of us..

A few different empanadas.. We tried a picadillo and a smoked short rib.. Short rib was awesome.. Was stuffed well with nicely smoked and super tender short ribs..

plate of vaca frita.. Basically, braised skirt steak that is then fried in onions.. Seriously good version.. Amazing version actually..

Pernil is off the hook too.. I only can imagine what the Cuban Sandwich tastes like.. Though we all had knives, they remained clean and used. Super tender, so moist.. I loved this, as did everyone.. Often times you get this dry crap.. When its bad its bad but, this was sublime.

Really good passion fruit flan.. We tasted cream cheese but, he says no.. I dont know about this.. :rolleyes:

Cream cheese and guava pie.. Homemade flakey pie crust.. Nice with a few cortaditos..

I wish these guys luck. This is a true labor of love and they are knocking out some of the best Cuban Food I have had. They deliver to my house too!
