Return of La Cubana in Glendale

Ernie | Jan 27, 2009 09:43 AM

I was saddened when my favorite Cuban restaurant in the LA area, La Cubana shuttered its doors over a year ago at their Colorado St location. Well, I am happy to report that La Cubana has resurfaced in a new location on Maryland Ave and the food is as good as ever.

The new location is more upscale feeling with clean white walls and a few new items on the menu. Lechon Asado (roast pork) was great as usual and another at our party enjoyed their Fricasé de Pollo (Cuban-style chicken Fricasse). Portions seemed a little larger since they now serve the entreé on a separate dish from the rice, beans, yuca cassava, or platanos maduros.

Service was good and it was a shame to see them so empty. The owner was very gracious and friendly, and gave our party a few free bottles of their mojo de ajo marinade on the way out.
