Their Potato Balls are the best things ever when fresh - a nice crunch on the outside, a creamy potato mash in the next layer, and a cumin (and other spice) flavored meat center. They're also not too bad when rebaked, but they're a must eat in-store!
We also shared the Pan con Bistec (6.7), which is a sandwich with marinated beef, potato sticks (sooo good), other veggies, with mojo, a Cuban garlic sauce, all in a Cuban roll. The serving size is massive, so I thought that they may have cut the quality of everything - but the meat was delicious, went lovely with the grilled onions, especially with the mojo. I had a sample of the chicken empanada, which was just ok, but we had a chicken croquette, which was better, but not as good as their potato balls!
Below is the Iced Dulce de Leche Latte (3.35), which was good with all the food, but a little sweet after drinking a bit. It's not the best coffee ever, but convenient and delicious nonetheless.
