185 Ave C
New York, New York 10009

A little corner of Cuban latin goodness on the real, old school, Lower East Side.
I always walk away feeling like I was just fed by a friends mother.
(If my mother ever cooked like this I'd never have left home)

Mojito's are the drink we go for here, although the sangria looks tempting.
Ceviche that reminds you of the ocean, fresh salt air and a faint sea breeze.  It is accompanied by these whispers of plantains chips; deep fried but not greasy and so good we could eat them by the bagful 
Ensalada de Casa - Avocado so fresh and creamy with salad greens that are lightly dress leaving just the right amount of crunch.
Camarones al Ajillo - Shrimp cooked to perfection and with the right balance of seasoning accompanied by rice and plantanos maduros (sweet plantains)
Pork Especial - Tender and flavorful, no knife needed.  It came with rice and tostones. 
All accompanied by this creamy white garlic cloud of heaven sauce 
(if you like garlic you all love this stuff)

Bottom line
2 drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 drinks for dessert, tax and tip $135.00
We not only would go there again, we have many times over.
