Started a new post, rather than combing with the older Waltham location thread.
I’ve never been to the Waltham location (or any older location). Took my team out to dinner here Tuesday night and we had a blast! Food was wonderful, and we all ate way too much. We were starving when we got there, so we probably went overboard on ordering.
I didn’t know much other than they served Cuban food, but was delighted that they had an interesting cocktail menu, and some really tempting non-alcoholic beverages too. The only mis-step here is that they ran out of ingredients for 2 of the 4 non-alcoholic offerings. A bummer because I really wanted to try them; the strawberry drink I did have was delicious.
We ordered about 8 tapas AND a large plate to split for 3. The chicharrones, ceviche of the day (halibut), maiz frituras (sp?) were particularly memorable. All the dishes were very tasty. We also had the glazed ribs, roasted cauliflower, fried yuca, and tamal. The large plate was a slow roasted pork that was so succulent and soft, served with rice and maduros. The maduros were fabulous.
For a crappy weather night, we thought it would be quiet, but this place was packed by the time we left. I wonder if that is typical, or if there was also a holiday, post work crowd. This did lead to some slow service at the end, but they were on top of everything when it was quieter. There is free parking in the back for dinner, but I wonder if that is allowed during the day as it appears to be employee parking for workers in that office building. It’s also a short walk from Porter Square T stop.
All in all, a big thumbs up!
