Amor Cubano Restaurant – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Upscale Latin Cuisine

Amor Cubano is the best place for an authentic night of Cuban entertainment and cuisine. Live music and dancing fill the front of the restaurant. In back, where the décor evokes the feeling of a Cuban backyard patio, complete with outdoor furniture and faux-laundry hanging on clotheslines, you can hold quiet conversations while dining on typical Cuban dishes. Locals flock here because the portions can easily serve two people and are superb. Favorites include garlicky lechon asado – roast pork with bitter orange mojo sauce; vaca frita – shredded bits of steak fried with onions and garlic; the hearty garbanzos fritos—chickpeas crisped with smoked ham and bacon; or the more contemporary Cubano frito—Cuba’s take on the hamburger, presented as two sliders made from ground beef, pork, and Spanish sausages.

In addition to the food, locals flock here for the music. On weekends, the talented house band, Ray y Su Son Sonete, belts out great son (Afro Cuban music), salsa, and rumba. On Thursdays the restaurant’s signature drink, mojito, in five different flavors, flows all night at the bar for $5. Every Tuesday trovadores (Cuban folksingers) are invited to perform starting at 7:30pm. Sunday brunch provides unlimited sangria in pineapple or red wine versions and bottomless mimosas.

   Literally a guide in my pocket

Posted by Max on 13th Jan 2012

I can only subscribe to what other people already have told about the guide. It’s just great that I can read a place description, actually give a call its manager, find it on a map and even hook up on its Twitter channel to keep my eye on it. Very smart!
