Recommended to me by the curator of the Ernest Hemingway house, this ultra low-key, always packed restaurant can be found by the amazing smell of garlic and roasted meats emanating from within.  Outside, its super humble - brick and painted signs.  Inside, again super unassuming decor but the food is stellar.  True Cuban food befitting the Southernmost tip of the US.  Without question the standout is the half garlic chicken with rice and beans.  Add a homemade flan and an ice cold beer - and experience true paradise.

Food Fighters

The table is set for the ultimate culinary clash in this one part cooking competition, one part game show. Host Adam Richman ("Man v. Food") will give homegrown amateur cooks the chance to test their skills against professional chefs. Every down-home cook has that one signature dish or secret family recipe that always gains favor with friends and family. Now, imagine going head-to-head in the kitchen against five professional chefs, who try to cook your specialty dish even better than you in the hopes of winning over a dinner party made up of the American public. With each savored victory, the cash prize gets bigger and bigger as the home cooks rise to every challenge and outcook the professional chefs. Think you've got what it takes to serve up the competition?
