Default Cuban food.......

........I saw a report last week on the main food favored in each state (no surprise that BBQ is favored in MO) and that Cuban Food was the predominant food in Florida. Are there any local Cuban restaurants close to TV? STL had an excellent one close to "The Hill" when we lived there.

Copa Cabana is very good
Never tried The Cuban Place .... I will have to make a point of it.
Chicken Time in Belleview is good to very good
Cafe Havana in Ocala is very good to excellent!!
Latin American Cafe in Ocala is very good
Latinos y Mas in Ocala is excellent ..... it is sorta an odd Cuban / Latin / Mex fusion place and easily the most "up scale" of all of these places.

and how could I forget:
Mercado Pueblo in Belleview (sorta, it is on SR484 between 441 and I-75) is VERY good. It is a Latin grocery / deli / cafeteria. Limited seating but great, ridiculously abundant food and ridiculously cheap.


I could give you a list of a dozen in Orlando and 3 dozen in the Tampa Bay area if you like ..... I know and loves me some Cuban food !!

Went to Latinos Y Mas last night and had paella. I also had the flan pudding.

One of the best flan puddings I ever ate. Great cab house wine. Everything was perfect and someone else paid.

Latinos y Mas. 2030 South Pine Avenue, Ocala, FL 34471. (352) 622-4777. info@latinos-mas.

A Brazilian Steak house is directly across the street. A cuban woman sitting at the table adjacent to us, recommended it.
