Cuba Central - New Cuban in Little Tokyo ????
I was just driving down Central in Little Tokyo and to my surprise I noticed a new Cuban place adjacent to Weiland's Brewery and Senor Fish (at 1st street).
Has anyone checked this place out yet? Festive, hand-painted, Havana styled signage all over the building advertising take-out. Seems to have just opened. Didn't catch the address but it's right at the corner of 1st and Central...
Wow this place is amazing, it blows Versalle away. I really like the nice Cuban pork sandwich. I tried it on monday for lunch. I have the roasted pork and ham. It was a little greasy but, thats what cuban food is about. The plantains are not saugy. Perfect nice and real. for a side dish i had a tamalle. It was suprisingly good, even though i did not know that cuban food had tamalle in menu.
My Score: 1-5 ( 5 best- 1 poor)
service: 4 ( cute waitress)
Notes: i liked it alot and i will probably eat there. nice laid back and not over priced.

Had lunch here today. Nice place, still getting its act together. Very crowded today for lunch. Best for smaller groups based on table configurations. Had a pretty good Cuban sandwich with banana chips for $5.95. Plantains looked good. Black beans looked good. Fish looked good. Mojito Chicken seems to be a speciality from $6.95 to $8.29. Most expensive item is a grilled shrimp plate for $11.29. Open til 10:00 p.m. 114 S. Central. 213/687-3193.
