Tucked in the back of a Cuban market is this gem, serving a mostly male and incredibly jovial crowd. It's counter service only, and it closes at 9 PM. A few Colombian specialties like arepas (corn pancakes with cheese) and tamales are regular offerings, along with a pork-and-garbanzo-bean soup. The Cuban sandwiches (pressed ham, cheese, marinated roast pork, and pickles on a hard roll) are famous; plain roast pork sandwiches are another favorite, as are the rice and black beans. There's even bacalao -- Spanish salt cod -- served with potatoes and boiled yuca. Plantains come in several preparations, from a fried green version to a roasted sweet version. Drinks include juices, shakes, and sweet, milky Cuban coffee.
