Though it's only a couple hundred miles from the United States, most Americans never get to go to Cuba to experience its lively culture and flavorful food. So Julio Ortiz, who was born and raised in Havana, decided to bring it to them with his eatery, Twisted Cuban Cafe & Bar.
Guests there dine on Twisted's most popular dish, lechon asado (roast pork) served with moro rice and yuca, as well as cuban sandwiches and other traditional Cuban dishes made from Ortiz's mother's recipes. These recipes rely on spices and cooking techniques from Spain, Africa, and the Caribbean islands, and often include plantains and rice and beans.
On warm days and nights, Twisted's outdoor patio is a great place to dig into these specialities, sip a Cuban mojito, and eavesdrop on birds' cell-phone conversations.
