Los Autenticos Cuban Cafe
The construction along Colonial Drive is pretty daunting, and with all the pedestrian traffic accidents going on (see www.brianfeldman.com), its probably easier to try to avoid the whole area.
But by doing so you may be missing out on some hidden shops in the area…such as Los Autenticos Cuban Cafe! Actually it’s easy to miss even without the construction going on.
Located in a small plaza a little west of Goldenrod, Los Autenticos Cuban Cafe is a small, hole in the wall type place with great sandwiches that I would personally choose over Subway’s any day. On this night I choose to order the “Cubano Especial” or Cuban special made with roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and mustard on a large cuban bread. The sandwich is grilled flat and served hot, all for $5.99.
The sandwich is delectable and I enjoy the different flavors in the sandwich, tasting the flavors of Cuba and Latin America.
I also order a mango smoothie to enjoy, a thick, fruity delicious drink to wash down the sandwich with.
Hole in the walls are my friends
