Glenn Lindgren: Orlando is a city filled with clean, ultramodern hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls. Ruben Perez has created a family of three modern Cuban diners that fit right in.

Raúl Musibay: Zaza New Cuban Diner has applied a fast casual concept to Cuban food. The restaurants are very clean and well-maintained. You order at the counter and your food is brought to you at the table.

Glenn Lindgren: The staff here is very helpful and can guide you through the various menu items.

Zaza New Cuban Diner

Jorge Castillo: Cubans eat American food of course, so it's not too startling to see several American-style breakfast items on the menu here.

Glenn Lindgren: Okay here's the thing about Cuban breakfast. It doesn't really exist. Most Cubans, even when they go out for breakfast, keep it simple. The most common Cuban breakfast is toasted Cuban bread, buttered and dipped into a cup of café con leche.

Raúl Musibay: It's either that or a Cuban pastry and a cafecito. So Zaza New Cuban Diner reliance on American breakfast -- which is served all day -- is a natural.

Jorge Castillo: And we have to say that the Cuban pastries are very good here.

Glenn Lindgren: If you're in between theme parks, Zaza New Cuban Diner is a great place to fuel up. Way cheaper than theme park fare and it's easy to pop in and out, with no long lines!

Raúl Musibay: For the traveler, their airport location is a great place to grab a sandwich to go or pick up a few Cuban pastries to bring home for the family.

Some great tasting side dishes -- your choice!

Jorge Castillo: They don't have as extensive a selection of Cuban pastries as you'd find in any decent bakery in Miami, but what they have, cheese, guava, and guava and cheese should be enough to satisfy your cravings.

Glenn Lindgren: Entrée plates are created to your specifications. You pick a protein and three side dishes.

Jorge Castillo: Your protein choices include vaca frita, lechon asado, palomilla steak, mojo chicken breast, ropa vieja, picadillo, and pan seared pescado.

Raúl Musibay: All excellent!
