The lady and I dropped in here while over in New Jersey recently wandering around the streets of Hoboken. The weather was still super nice out that evening so we decided to take a seat on the outside sidewalk seating. The Cuban is one of those surprising finds that is totally unexpected and wish you had known about it sooner.
Kick-ass mojitos, wonderful appetizers, excellent service, live music on Thurs night, outside seating. Perfect. What more can you ask for?
Oh, maybe happy hour Tues-Fri 4-7pm, and Sat-Sun 3-6pm! $5 drinks and tapas!
Live Cuban music Thursdays 6:30 – 9:30pm!
DJ’s Friday and Saturday nights!
Strong mojitos and ridiculously authentic Cuban specialties. Drinks made with top shelf as the norm too!
The staff and service was very attentive, warm and friendly. I felt like I was at a family’s place hooking me up with a good time. Loved sitting outside under the stars listening to great music while kicking back with a few mojitos. Our waiter helped us navigate the menu and we were quite satisfied with our choices.
Empanadas ( Chicken Fricase, Ropa Vieja, Escalivada ), Potato Croquettes with wild mushroom, grilled mushroom escabeche, truffle jalapeno aioli, and a Tamale ( Traditional Cuban corn tamal, pork, Creole onions ). All very good. Basically, we just ordered a bunch of appetizers “tapas style” so we could try a few things out. Really, the food here is delish!
Had to try out a few desserts. The Flancito ( Caramel flan w/ Malibu coconut pineapple salsita ) rocked it! We also had an ice cream that is hard to describe but oddly addicting – Mamey. I don’t know what it was but could not stop eating it.
If I lived in Hoboken this would be one of my go-to happy hour spots as you can’t beat it! Fun atmosphere, great food, cheap strong drinks. Who am I kidding? I would be there on weekends too. Tasty!
