A piece of Cuban in Portland
A small local business, where you can taste the most traditional dishes of Cuban cuisine with unique Home style and the secrets of my great aunt, with fresh ingredients and the best quality.
Cuban cuisine is a blend of African, Spanish, and other Caribbean cuisines. Some Cuban recipes share spices and techniques with Spanish and African cooking, with some Caribbean influence in spice and flavor. This results in a blend of the several different cultural influences.
The most typical Cuban food is the comida criolla. This is a dish made up of various ingredients.
There always is a protein source (it can be fish, seafood, pork, chicken and sometimes beef), a salad, fried plantains and rice and beans.
