Cuban Food, San Diego?

I went to a great hole in the wall last week up in the Inland Empire (a place called Flamingo Palms). It was a little family owned joint with great cuban food. I had a dish which reminded me of my mom's haitian cooking (it was called Masa de puerca Frita or something along those lines). I am curious if there is a good Cuban place here in SD. The only place I know of is Miami Grill and well...the name clues you into what to expect. And hole in the wall/family owned recommendations?

  1. Andre's on Morena Blvd. is very good, IMO. There's also Tropical Star on Balboa, but that's more Puerto Rican than strictly Cuban. Miami Grill is a bad joke.

    1. There is also Azucar in Oceanbeach (I haven't tried it yet but it got good reviews on CH) which is more cuban patisserie.

      1. Yeah, avoid Miaim Grill.

        Go to Andre's.

        1. I will add Andre's to my list a places to visit. Thank you.

                Archibald and 6th or 7th (just north of the 10). Right across the street from the "Christmas House" in a little strip mall.
