My wife and I ate lunch yesterday for the first time at Bella Cuba. They offer a wide variety of Cuban dishes on their menu to try. They also have a special lunch menu in addition to their regular menu. Most items are served with white rice, black beans, and maduro plantains, plus garlic toast.
I had the Lechon Asado roast pork which was marinated in a mojo sauce (garlic, olive oil, and sour orange juice) and was covered by raw onions for $13.95, but it was also available on the special lunch menu for $9.95. The portions are huge. I would have preferred the mojo sauce to be more garlicy and less about the sour citrus taste. Next time I will try their Pollo Asado roasted chicken with garlic. You get a half chicken on the regular menu and a quarter chicken on the special lunch menu for $12.95 and $9.95, respectively.
My wife had Bistec de Pollo from the special lunch menu for $9.95 instead of $12.95 on the regular menu. It is a boneless, skinless, grilled chicken breast with garlic and covered with grilled onions. Her portions were so huge that we thought, at first, that they had mistakenly brought out the regular menu item rather than the lunch special. The service was first-rate. The iced tea was fresh brewed and very good,
We first tried Cuban food about 30 years ago at the Felix Continental Café in Orange and have ben going back ever since. We have also periodically ate at the Flamingo Palms Café in Rancho Cucamonga, the Coconut Palms in Pomona, and, the now closed, Mumbai Café in Temple City(?). The one thing that I have noticed is that they are all slightly different in the way they prepare their Cuban fare which makes for interesting dining.
