Glenn Lindgren: From the looks of things, most people are here for the sandwiches. Although you won't find a true Cuban sandwich here we guess for a lack of true Cuban bread you can get a pretty decent medianoche.
Jorge Castillo: What they do serve here is a unique sandwich with Cuban influences. It's not like anything you'd ever get in Miami!
Raúl Musibay: But let me tell you, the sandwiches are good.
Glenn Lindgren: The sandwiches are all assembled on a bakery roll with lettuce, cilantro, and a seasoned mayonnaise. You add your choice of meat pork, chicken, shrimp and they cover the whole works with a mound of sautéed onions. The cilantro is really a nice touch, it gives the sandwich a nice tangy bite.
Raúl Musibay: It's not Cuban, but it tastes great.
Glenn Lindgren: There is a small counter and a few tables outside for outdoor dining. If you're in Seattle on one of those rare days when it isn't raining, the outdoor table is a nice place to sit and watch the people go by.
Glenn Lindgren: They actually have a few dishes where you need to specify the degree of "heat," something you'll never see in a Miami Cuban restaurant.
Jorge Castillo: You get a small corn on the cob with your meal, but the frijoles are tasty and worth the extra cost as a side item.
Glenn Lindgren: The menu includes a Jamaican Jerk chicken sandwich and something we have never seen in a Cuban restaurant: tofu.
Jorge Castillo: This is Seattle after all!
Glenn Lindgren: We're still trying to explain it to Raúl.
Raúl Musibay: What in the heck is tofu?
