The Cuban Corner Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Crowds reflect a growing American interest in Cuban cooking, which sounds similar to Tex-Mex fare but is pure Caribbean in essence. Try the guava and cream cheese empanadas if you doubt it. Go for other Cuban specialties, too: ropa vieja of shredded stewed flank steak that resembles old rags and the holiday dish, puerco asado, of roasted pork doused with a vinegary sauce. There are plenty of other island choices --- from fried fish to shrimp cooked with fresh tomatoes, capers and wine --- so dig in and eat. You can even find some popular sandwiches with Cuban twists, such as the Washington Nationals Slugger submarine. Traditional desserts include flan and churros. Ask to see the wine list, and sip Cuban coffee with your meal. The whole experience is a tropical treat.
