Bella Cuba Restaurant
Brought the family and some friends yesterday for our second meal at this fine Cuban restaurant. Once again we were very pleased with the experience. The service was good and the food was excellent. I was raised on Cuban food and have dined at many Cuban restaurants in southern CA and Miami. Bella Cuba is easily in the top quartile. For an appetizer we ordered the Mariquitas with mojo sauce and they were addictingly good--the mariquitas were perfectly crisp and the mojo sauce rich and balanced. My wife loved the Vaca Frita and I enjoyed the Lechon Asado--both were very flavorful and delicious. The accompanying rice, beans & plantains were perfectly cooked. My son enjoyed his Cuban Sandwich but my daughter felt that her Papa Rellenas were a bit over-cooked and I would have to agree. Our friends ordered the Bistec de Pollo Empanizado and the Bistec Empanizado and they both liked their meals. We washed everything down with two pitchers of Sangria which was average but got the job done. I was told that this restaurant has been open for about one year now. I hope they don't fall into the trap of many Cuban restaurants which forget about the importance of good service and marketing. It would be a shame to lose this gem...so far they have the right formula.

Just a moment...
