Today I am thankful for Cuban cuisine, and there is nothing like the Cuban food that I get to eat when I take a trip back home. Empanadas, yellow rice, black beans, ropa vieja, it is all happiness on a plate.
Now, I will be completely honest with you, ever since I left home years ago I have yet to find a place that prepares great Cuban food outside of my home state. I have been to a couple of restaurants here and there that seem to have given it a good try, but somewhere down the line their effort was completely lost, unfortunately.
Thankfully though, I have found one restaurant in the vicinity of where I currently live that actually serves some fairly decent Cuban food. So when I need to have a little bit of a Cuban cuisine fix, that restaurant serves as a fairly decent stand-in. Oh, and did I mention that they have an amazing Keylime pie? #lovebythedrop
