Cuban in Santa Cruz/Watsonville/Monterrey?
Welcome to the area, YummySound! We used to live in Los Feliz before moving here, but I never tried El Cochinito.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any Cuban food in the area. There are a couple of Cuban places in downtown San Jose but I haven't tried them. Habana Cuba (website below) is supposed to be good, but further discussion of San Jose should be on the SF Bay Area board. You can always ask for recs on that board since driving over the hill for certain specialties can be the best option. Let us know of any good chow discoveries you make in the area!
