New Rest/Cafe Jefferson Valley

I saw in the Pennysaver that a new place opened in Jefferson Valley called Salsa Latin Eatery. I had to be in the area so my daughter and I went to get lunch. They have a few tables to eat there but we did take-out. Like a cafe with just counter service.

They have a website but it's not up and running yet I guess

Anyway- I got a Cuban sandwich and you can get half or whole. I got the whole and it was 7.99. I have never had one so I have nothing to compare it to but it was full of roasted pork, cheese, pickles. It was very tasty. I also got a side of tostones that were made fresh and buring hot and they were delicious. My daughter had something that I never heard of called Mofongo (mashed plantains with chicken). It looked like a mashed plantain volcano with roasted chicken mixed in, it was served with a little container of garlic sauce. It was really weird looking but tasty. I didn't think it was worth 8.49.

There are other things I would like to try. They had pernil, rotisserie chicken, arroz con pollo, stuffed peppers, pastelillos, stuffed sweet plantails, pastelon.

I know they must have just opened but I get really annoyed if it takes a long time for take-out. We waited for 30 minutes for what we ordered to be ready.
