Whenever I’m in Central Florida or the Orlando area, to be more precise, I track down my friends from A Lo Cubano Cuban Kitchen. I’m all about croquetas, and the Chorizo Picante & Manchego Cheese Croquetas are second to none.
They’ve accepted my invitation multiple times for my Croqueta Palooza event, which should tell you how much faith I have in their croqueta skills.
They’ve got a bunch of great sandwiches, including a Cuban Sandwich, Pan con Lechon and a Frita Cubana with a little heat on each bite’s tail end.
You’ll need to leave room for their Cuban Torrejas topped with guava and cream cheese foam. These Cuban Torrejas are the love child of French toast and a pastelito de guayaba y cheese (Cuban guava & cheese pastry).
So many people tell me they can’t find real-deal Miami-style Cuban food in Orlando, but guess what? I’ve got news for you. A Lo Cubano Kitchen is precisely what they’ve been looking for in Central Florida.
So stop complaining, track them down on social media, and satisfy your Cuban food cravings.
COOL FACT: Lisa and Yojan, owners of A Lo Cubano Kitchen, worked at EDGE Steak & Bar in Downtown Miami.
