I'm a newbie here, so be gentle.

Sorry folks, but Versailles doesn't cut it.

I'm originally from Miami Beach, and I know my cuban food. The only place that really comes close is Porto's (in Glendale and now NoHo) but they're not open for dinner! Eating cuban IS eating dinner at like 10pm. So I'm looking for real cuban places. I've tried this one place south of Washington Blvd. (on Sepulveda, can't think of the name) and it wasn't bad, but it's a little out of the way now (I'm in Hollywood).

It'd also be great to get a cup of cuban coffee in the morning, but I can't find a place that makes it the real cuban way (tons of sugar, stirred with a drop of coffee in a small silver pitcher). I tried the coffee at Versailles once, and I think they used Maxwell House with some milk mixed in (café con leche).

Let me know what you've found!
