I drive by this new restaurant under construction in Medford Square every day. It’s going to be called ‘El-Tacuba Cocina & Tequila Bar’. Give them a follow @eltacubamedford, or check out their website at eltacuba.com. I’m curious to see what’s on the menu. I’ve only had a handful of ‘Cubano Sandwiches” – the last time being in Miami (pictured above) at Enriquetas Sandwich Shop by South Beach and it was amazing. I can’t wait to try one at El Tacuba!
Boston doesn’t seem to have many Cuban restaurants..or I’m just not aware of any. I just googled top Cuban restaurants in Boston and the top 3 are:
- Dona Habana – South End – http://donahabanarestaurant.com/
- The Old Havana – Jamaica Plain: http://www.theoldhavanajp.com/
- Gustazo Cuban Restaurant & Cafe – Waltham: https://www.gustazo-cubancafe.com/
I’ve never been to any of these, but I’ll have to give them a shot – especially the cuban sandwich from Dona Habana (pictured below).
