Before coming to Miami, I was told by my friends that I could find a lot of good Cuban restaurants here. And now I believed that they were not joking when they said that lol. If Yelp allows half point, I'd give this place 4.5. And I'll explain why.
My boyfriend had the skirt stake. To us, this dish was a little subpar. The stake really lacked seasoning, and was a little chewy. Imagine having an overcooked stake. And that was exactly the kind the texture we got from this dish. The caramelized onions were pretty good though, balancing out the greasiness from the stake.
I tried the sample platter, consisting of their signature beef, pork, and chicken dishes. If the stake was the only thing we tried, I would have given this place a 3. But this platter was like everything I could ask for. I wouldn't want to change anything of it. There was even a small piece of pork crackling on the top. OMG what a dream! The seasoning was right on point. With complex and different flavor profile for all of the three dishes, each of them shined by themselves.
If you want to have a sneak peek of the Cuban flavor, definitely go with the sampler platter. It will be a wonderful treat for yourself!
