    Unique Chinese-Cuban cuisine in NYC

    My Cuban friends recommended me this restaurant for our trip to NYC to sample the Chinese-Cuban food so we went there after a visit to the Museum of Natural History on a Sunday afternoon. We were starving and ordered the "Lechon" which is roast pork and is served with rice, black beans, cassava and sweet fried bananes. We really enjoyed our meal and found the prices reasonable. The restaurant is quite pleasant and has big windows so it is quite bright. I was also eager to see the Chinese-Cuban waiters who speak Spanish with a Cuban accent. One of them goes around the tables with a water pitcher saying "AGUA" which means water in Spanish and he says it with a strong Cuban accent which is funny but also amazing. This is something you can only see in this restaurant and in Chinatown in Havana. I talked to the old waiters and they were quite nice in fact telling me about the Chinese community in Cuba. Many left after the revolution and came to NYC. I wish we had a restaurant like this in Geneva.

    One of the best

    The delivery time is good, the food is fantastic. Home cooked and tasty. We live in the 90's and even though they are in the 70's, they deliver, which is great. Mostly tried the Spanish Food, but their spare ribs are beautiful. Hope this place stays around forever.

    got to try this NYC Landmark

    A Landmark restaurant, and must try place for the Upper Westsider. I like the Beef stew but whatever you get you will like. Just watch for the lines and make sure you not wasting your eating time waiting in the take out line, which can get confused with the table line. Happy days

    Love this joint!

    I've been going to this rest since i was a lil girl;I'm now 27. I've always had the deviled shrimp with yellow rice black beans they're great (no onions)! Yes sometimes the beans are harder than I prefer but every place has its day.. I may be bias, because I grew up eating there, but anybody I've taken there hasn't complained, yet. I say its worth a try. You may just love it.

    Odd Combination

    The menu is so confusing. It was hard choosing the type of cuisine I was craving the most. I ordered yellow rice with fish and seasoned vegetables. Everything tasted fresh and the vegetables weren't buried in heavy sauce. I could actually taste the veggies. The restaurant was crowded, but clean. The serving staff was quite friendly and were familiar with the menu enough to answer my questions. I don't think a restaurant like this would fly in California, but the restaurant is uniquely New York.

    Best Chinese Cuban Cusine out there!!!

    If you know the history and the heritage of the Chinese-Cubans, you would defnitely appriciate this little "China Town in Havana" atmosphere restaurant. I love the mixture of the Cuban and Chinese cusine. Food there are very homey and authentic and very tasty! Services are great as well. This restaurant is the Upper West Sider's favorite spot !!! You should defnitely try Arroz Frito De La Casa on the menu!!!
