Has the Chow Deity Answered my Prayers? Cafe Cubano to Open in Belmont
My SO was driving by the intersection of School and Belmont, and in the old Select Cafe local noticed that a Cafe Cubano is going to open.
Dear chow deity (perhaps the flying spaghetti monster www.venganza.org) please let this be a genuine, authentic, Cuban, lechon roasting, Cuban restaurant... Please, oh please, oh pleasey please!
Extra points if they make ropa vieja and chorizo and garbanzos.
A moment of silence while I pray to every I hold sacred in Chowiness...
22Based on information from the Belmont Patch article, menu items at Gustazo Cafe may include pan con lechon (pork roast sandwich), a Cuban-style hamburger with beef and pork, shredded beef and pork dishes, chickpeas fritters, fried plantains, guava juice, and coconut smoothies. The restaurant, which will also have a coffee bar within the space, will likely be open for breakfast and lunch only."
