Homestyle Cuban not yuppified American-Cuban in San Mateo. I had the lechon plate last week. Which contained stewed pork shoulder, rice, a piece of fried plaintain, beans and some pickled onions. The meat was kinda tough and salty. Though I’d buy it if someone tells me its how they cook it in Cuban home kitchens or cafeterias run by the state. Nothing fancy just homestyle Cuban. Need some Cubans and Miami-Cubans to comment on real Cuban food.
Still would like to try their Cubano some time, which they call themselves “best”. Anyone had?
The bathroom, and the dining room, was absolutely spotless. I don’t think I have seen that in a <$20 restaurant before. Spotless. Comfy and pleasant space to eat in. Pretty charming, in fact. Counter service.
