DROP-IN DINNER: Cuban Roast Pork, Plantains, Black Beans & Rice by Len Senater

March 5, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

While Cuba may not be able to boast of a great restaurant culture (yet), the food in people’s homes can be phenomenal. I have had the good fortune to have travelled to Cuba several times with Cuban friends, and this diner is inspired by the wonderful meals I have shared with them and their families.

The Lechon Asado (roast pork) is marinated overnight in a Mojo Criollo made with sour Seville oranges (I’m working with an orange/lemon juice blend), organo, garlic and cumin, and then slow-roasted for several hours. Served with the classic accompaniment of Moros Y Cristianos (“Moors & Christians” aka black beans & rice), made with special pickled Aji peppers made by my friend’s Mom in Cuba and unavailable in Canada, and sweet fried plantains. $12

It ain’t veg’n-friendly, but hey, it’s gluten-free!

Soup, salad & a surprise dessert will also be available.
