Just when you thought you had eaten it all, along comes Sanguich de Miami with their Plantain Fries.
One of the all time great Cuban snacks are the fried green plantains strips with mojo dipping sauce. #mariquitas #friedplantains #mojo #crispychips #cubancomfortfood

Lovingly referred to as a sábana (a blanket) because of its size, the Bistec Empanizado is a steak that is breaded, think Cuban-style Country Fried Steak but better. #bistecempanizado #cubancomfortfood #friedsteak #breadedsteak #sabana

I'm not sure that you will find a better Pan con Bistec than the one from Sanguich de Miami. It's not traditional but the flavors are out of this world.

When is there too much cheese? The answer is never when it comes to El Exquisito's Milanesa.
The Milanesa and in particular the Pollo a la Milanesa is one of the unsung heroes of Cuban Comfort Food. #milanesa #cubancomfortfood #chickenparm #swisscheese #chickensteak

Karla Bakery recently changed the way they make thier Cuban pastries. The Guayaba (Guava) pastelito is very good.
These pastelitos are from El Brazo Fuerte, one of my old school favorites. #pastelitos #guayaba #croquetas #cubanbakery #miamibakery

The frita is a classic regional American burger created by Cuban immigrants in South Florida. While the standard is a thin, griddled patty with a spiced ketchup-based sauce, my take on it is a slightly larger version designed for the backyard grill with a boldly seasoned pork and beef patty, a creamier sauce, and more vegetables. The crisp shoestring potatoes that are the hallmark of a traditional frita remain the same.

The only proper way to end a Cuban feast is with a cafecito with espumita. #cubancoffee #espresso #cafecito #espuma #cafelallave
Here’s that special moment where you’re about to dunk your buttery toast into your cafe con leche.
This is the critical moment when the coffee is added to the steamed milk. Too little and it's weak, too much and it's overbearing but when it's just right, you know.
