02 Sep Cuban Kitchen is Legit
Next up was the Puerco asado—what Cuban Kitchen’s owners say is the national dish of Cuba. Pork is marinated in tropical spice and citrusy and garlicky mojo juice, then slow cooked and topped with grilled onions. It’s comfort food, and the tender pork warmed my belly like stew on a cold day. The side of moro rice—white rice and black beans—was so yummy I couldn’t stop eating it. Cubans definitely know how to do beans and rice! I also tried the fried maduros for the first time. They were tangy and slightly sweet.
