Q&A with the Owner
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our menu is small, simple, casual and Cuban. The bowls, plates, and sandwiches offer a combination of foods that you would eat at your home in Cuba. Rice, black beans, a meat, tropical fruits, and plantains are staples in any house in Cuba. The food isn't fancy or complicated in Cuba, but holds an array of flavor combinations such as citrus, garlic, and bay, and that is what our menu re-creates here in the PNW.
Do you use any family recipes at your restaurant? Whose family do they belong to (the chef, the owner, or someone else)?
Much of our menu is inspired by I grew up eating in Havana, Cuba. It varies from Miami-style dishes, and is, of course, somewhat different due to the ingredients available and some creative improvements.
What’s the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
We love it when people who grew up in Cuba come in and tell us that our food tastes just like what they ate at home in Cuba. One person even said that our beans were better than his mama's. Another regular customer went to Miami, came back and said, "You ruined my trip to Miami. Your food is so much better than what I ate when I was there that I was disappointed the whole time."
