Cuban in Des Moines?

Anyplace in Des Moines or Central Iowa serving Cuban food?

  1. Not that I know of unless it's basically brand new. There was one a couple years ago in the ingersoll area but from what I understand it wasn't very good.

    The closest thing I supposed would be Mi Patria which is Ecuadorian. I know that's not what you asked for but it's a nice change of pace from all the cookie cutter latin restaurants we have in town. It's certainly the closest thing to Cuban food there is here.

    1. When that Nuevo Latino place opens up in the Des Moines Social Club Firehouse building, they plan on having a cuban fritas burger. They may have the Cuban Sandwich too.
