This charming neighborhood eatery never fails to impress, and hefty portions are great for takeout. Try this: The tostones starter takes plantains and fries them into golden chips, all the better for dredging (slowly) through the Parmesan-dusted house guacamole. Follow with a Cuban sandwich, fat with slow-roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles, nicely elevated with a toothsome chipotle mayo. We’re addicted to the Crispy Corn Flake Fried Chicken Sandwich on pressed bread, which casts substantial shade on pedestrian drive-through mutants. Balance it all with a Technicolor beet hummus, a masterful mélange of pureed beets dressed with roasted cauliflower and carrots, festooned with micro-greens, and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. Pro tip: Items like salpicón and brisket are available to order by the pound.
