Islas Canarias Restaurant Review

: It's a plain, medium-sized room with a long counter and a bunch of tables and chairs arranged in unremarkable fashion---not much different in appearance from what a neighborhood restaurant in Havana might be. Patrons come for big portions of tasty home-cooked island food at popular prices. Whole fried snapper, roast chicken with mojo, pork chunks in garlic, rice, beans and plantains are excellent, but there are also specialties like pigs' feet and oxtail stew for the more adventurous. For the complete Islas experience, make the finale a café Cubano, perhaps with an obscenely sweet tres leches or some tocino del cielo, which, despite its name meaning bacon of heaven, is actually a meatless dessert flan made with egg yolks and cinnamon.
