Entrees

Traditionally most of these entrees would be served with arroz blanco (white rice) y frijoles negro (black beans), but we can substitute a potato and vegetable if you prefer. Also, any of our entrees can be made into appetizer sized portions.


CARNE / BEEF

Bistec en Casuela (Braised Steaks)

Our version of this Cuban favorite. Fork tender beef in a delicious sauce with olives, raisins, vegetables and spices.

Bistec de Palomila (Cuban Fried Steak)

Choice Sirloin Steak is pounded thin, then flash fried with onions.

Bistec Empanizado (Breaded Steak)

This simple, hearty steak was an everyday dish in most Cuban home of old. Maybe not exotic, but so delicious we think it deserves to be a dinner special.

Boliche Mechado (Stuffed Beef Tenderloin)

Roasted rare beef tenderloin stuffed with chorizo and ham served with black bean gravy.

Picadillo (Ground Beef Hash)

This simple, popular dish is sure to please. Ground beef, green olives and raisins in a savory sauce.

Rabo Encendido (Oxtail Stew)

Literally translated “Rabo Encendido” is “Tail on Fire.” Savory beef dish with vegetables in a mildly spicy tomato and red wine sauce. Delicioso!

Ropa Vieja (Shredded Beef)

Literally translated “Ropa Vieja” is “Old‑Clothes.” Odd as its name may be, this classic Cuban dish is a winner. Flank steak is slow cooked in a rich tomato and vegetable sauce until fork‑tender, then shredded.

Salpicon / Cuban Style Meatloaf

Similar to the American version, but with a subtle, delightful difference thanks to the Spanish spices.


PESCADO / FISH:

Camarones al Ajillo / Garlic Shrimp

Shrimp are sautéed in our own mojo criollo (garlic, olive oil and citrus sauce).

Camarones Enchilados / Shrimp Creole

After the 1791 Revolution, many Haitians emigrated to Cuba. This spicy dish is an example of the French Creole cooking they introduced. Shrimp are sautéed in a spicy tomato and vegetable sauce.

Paella de Mucho Gusto

Our own special version of the Spanish classic — our recipe features chicken, chorizo, calamary, shrimp, mussels and vegetables. We substitute long grain rice for the traditional arroz valencia, which some consider a culinary mortal sin, but we like it better!

Pescado a la Horno con Ensalada Tropicale / Baked Fish

Fresh Fish Filets (the best available catch of the day — a mild tasting white meat fish, e.g. Striped Bass, Golden Tile, Halibut, Amber Jack or Red Snapper) are lightly breaded, pan roasted, then topped with a fresh tropical salad.

Pescado Estilo Sauté / Sautéed Fish

Fresh fish filets (the best available catch of the day) are pan sautéed with tomatoes, onions, white wine and cilantro.
