[QUOTE=Soundgod;1130312]Ever try one of the La Carrettas in Miami?
I’ve been in no hurry to eat at Bongo’s because some years back, the wife got a Cafe Cubano from the cafeteria window and was presented with a plain old espresso. Any Cuban restaurant that can’t make a proper Cafe Cubano is a major fail in my book, no matter what I think of Emilio and Gloria personally. (Decent people when I’ve worked them).[/QUOTE]
No…haven’t been to Miami in years…but I am sure there are some good authentic Cuban restaurants in that area!
I am sure there are some Bongo dishes that wouldn’t make the grade with my Cuban in laws…but then…not much does. I thought their desserts were a bit lacking but overall, the food was a good treat. As someone said, it’s something different. I also like that Bongos is down on the West Side…it’s quieter over there.
…too bad that Cafe Cubano was not right…I would have questioned that. I prefer the Cafe con Leche myself…even then, I have to have a lot of the “Leche” to drink it!!! Actually the best Cafe con Leche I have had was at a restaurant in Puerto Rico…I wanted more than the little cup!!!
