When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Cuban cuisine at El Rey De Las Fritas. Today's deal is valid at the restaurant's three Miami-area locations.
El Rey De Las Fritas serves up an extensive menu of authentic Cuban cuisine. Start your flavorful survey of Caribbean flavors with one of the restaurant's famous fritas, a seasoned-beef patty on cuban bread topped with sizzling shoestring potatoes ($3.25, $3.50 with cheese). Or submerge your mouth in the submarine-like pan con tortilla calljera, a heaping omelette sandwich guaranteed to wake up taste buds with its fresh flavors and impression of Gloria Estefan ($4.25). Sandwich-averse diners can dive into the tamal preparado, a cornhusk-wrapped tamale accompanied with a side of seasoned pork ($5.25) or sip on the sopa de pallo, a traditional Cuban chicken soup ($3.25).
To achieve total stomach satisfaction, El Rey De Las Fritas caps its Cuban carte du jour with homemade dessert selections such as flan casero con coco, a firm-custard dish served with coconut and a giant plastic bib ($3). For thirst-quenching, the restaurant also offers sippable natural fruit shakes and juices, with flavors ranging from mango to guanabana—a creamy citrus fruit native to Central and South America ($3).
