I just found out that we are going to a Cuban Restaurant tomorrow night for hubby's office party and since I have never eaten at one - thought maybe some of you guys could suggest some good options to try. About the only thing I have heard of is the Cuban Sandwich. So any suggestions are very welcome!!!! Thanx so much!!!!

My boyfriend really likes pulled pork. I always get black beans and yellow rice. Cuban bread is really good.

All that I know of that is Cuban is black beans and rice, which one of my patients who was from Cuba makes and brings to me. It's quite good. I hear that their cuisine is delicious. I don't know of any Cuban restaurants around me. Please tell us how it was!

Well the actual name of the restaurant is Cuba Libre - and it stinks that I can't access their website to see the menu but it's underconstruction so am looking for some ideas. Thanx for the Hope you have a Great Time!!! I am pretty sure that we will - afterwards we are going to the theatre to see The Christmas Carol Play!!!!
