Fodor's Expert Review Qubano
This delightful restaurant is owned by vivacious chef Vivian Reynaldo, who seems to know everyone in town. Her rich Hungarian potatoes, a recipe handed down from her mother, have been known to leave customers speechless, while the grilled tostones sandwiches, which use fried plantains instead of bread, are topped with a finger-licking onion-and-orange sauce. Meat lovers will relish the juicy hamburgers stuffed with goat cheese and served with yucca fries. Several vegetarian dishes are also available, and lunch salads are topped with fresh ingredients like garbanzo beans, avocado, and jicama. By night, Qubano morphs into a tapas bar, operated by the talented neighboring chef, Angelo.
