While he didn’t even sit down at El Mago De Las Fritas, President Obama took 1 Frita and 5 Fritas w/Cheese to go. What’s a Frita? Read this starter: All About The Frita. He also had a Materva (a soft drink whose origins date back to 1920s Cuba) to drink while there, which he finished on the way out. El Mago mentioned to me that he had no clue what was going on. All of a sudden Secret Service men filled his shop and next thing he knew, the President showed up. Mago said the President was very friendly with everyone and engaged in conversation with all the patrons there. I hope he had the Frita without cheese.
