Return of La Cubana in Glendale
I was saddened when my favorite Cuban restaurant in the LA area, La Cubana shuttered its doors over a year ago at their Colorado St location. Well, I am happy to report that La Cubana has resurfaced in a new location on Maryland Ave and the food is as good as ever.
The new location is more upscale feeling with clean white walls and a few new items on the menu. Lechon Asado (roast pork) was great as usual and another at our party enjoyed their Fricasé de Pollo (Cuban-style chicken Fricasse). Portions seemed a little larger since they now serve the entreé on a separate dish from the rice, beans, yuca cassava, or platanos maduros.
Service was good and it was a shame to see them so empty. The owner was very gracious and friendly, and gave our party a few free bottles of their mojo de ajo marinade on the way out.

Wonderful - I'd wanted to visit this place, and then they closed. Only thing odd is, though I can see why they might not want to publish prices on a website, I don't understand why they wouldn't post the hours! Isn't that the next most important thing after the address?
Thank you for posting this, Ernie. I had a very nice meal there a couple of years ago and then - poof! - they were closed! Great to hear that they are back. I will definitely be going soon! My friend had the tongue and it was fantastic! Thanks again!
