Featuring some of the best Mojitos north of Cuba, this restaurant knows how to make your taste buds happy.Working and/or living in Silver Spring is as tasty as it is convenient. That's thanks to the brain of Adolfo Mendez, owner of Cubano's, who unveiled a lunch menu at this restaurant. "The idea is to allow for home-cooked meals with quicker service," he said. Which means, essentially, patrons can feel like they've taken a long lunch without having wasted any time. And after having sampled the deliciousness that is Cubano's many months ago, we support this quicker service. It means less time between when we say, "Let's go with the Mi Tierra Sampler Plate," and when our taste buds get to enjoy three different Cubano's specialities. Pictured above, the dish comes with Ropa Vieja (shredded beef in a Cuban-style sauce of tomato, garlic, onion and peppers) Lechón Asado (tender roasted pork in an orange marinade), and Fricasé de Pollo (chicken on the bone slow-cooked and served with a hearty red wine tomato sauce). Vegetarians will love the hearty portions of Moros y Cristianos (spiced rice and beans) and sweet plantains, as well as the Parrillada de Vegetales, a grilled dish chock full of all sorts of healthy treats. But of course, the best vegetarian treat in Cubano's is the Mojito. Hands down, some of the best in the DMV, the Mojitos might not have you going back to work at all.
