Cafe La Carreta Restaurant Review

: For those seeking consistent Cuban classics at bargain prices, it's always easy to find a La Carreta; the best-known Cuban eatery in Miami, now expanded to Broward County, is a mini-empire with almost a dozen locations. Expect café con leche and coladas, along with satisfactory medianoche sandwiches, stuffed with pulled roast pork, ham and cheese, then press-heated. At some locations, cafeteria-style counters also display traditional, hot Cuban specialties---soups like black bean or cream of malanga; vaca frita (fried beef); ham croquetas; yuca, plantains and numerous other homey starches---while other more formal spaces (most notably Calle Ocho's original La Carreta) boast finer fare and a more extensive menu.
