Cubans/Latin Community, Miami: 3 reviews and 2 photos

Cubans are big into mixing flavors.

Cuban food, contrary to many a tourist's expectation is not HOT spicey as many a Mexican food is. Quite the contrary, most Cubans have a very low tolerance for anything spicey.
Flavors instead, center on Caribbeean tastes blending Lime/Garlic/Onion/Cilantro/and Olive Oil to give food a refreshingly and unique flavor.

Meats are marinated before being fried, baked or broiled and are usually accompanied by a couple of starch dishes and another protein - beans.

Another curious food trait of the Cubans is our like for mixing combinations of sweet and salty together such as fried sweet plantains with steak and rice/beans or Sweet fruit filled pastries with our buttered bread in the mornings.
Try the combination, you will enjoy!
