  1. Hey Chris..our e mail is...ianandjen88@gmail.com
  2. The menu has at least 30 - 40 different items ...many of which are not just Cuban but Of a wider Caribbean Influence .
  3. Uptight.....see what I mean....however I resemble those remarks ( or did perhaps)...My wife says you forgot...###....e .
  4. I had to pull up my Italian Basil plants a couple of weeks ago...too much wood and insects..this week it’s time for the Thai basil to go .I like to replant before the end of the rainy season...my problem is I can’t find either ...have been to three nurseries....anyone seen any ?
  5. Uptight... on several other food / restaurant blogs Robertos Cuban pork dishes have been well liked ,not to mention rick ,Heidi and myself . You post on almost every blog on most of the forums ...the vast majority of which are negative. ..” A bit ago “ ...” wold “....” affect “ ...was this post perhaps written during ..happy hour...again ."..... Gringal....” unconvincing at least “ sounds like he’s on trial....for his pork . Rafter.....I sometimes miss throwing obnoxious customers and amateur food critics out of my res
  6. As restaurant after restaurant closes due to lockdown and virus restrictions reviews of this nature are unnecessary .and only cause further financial burdens . What do they achieve...nothing...if you have a bad experience don’t go back ....
  7. Please clarify (. You’re not usually short of words ) what do you disagree with...the dumb asses , the malanga fritters or the the composition of aCuban sandwich.... “ barely it “ ....perhaps you’re a little more familiar with the McDonalds attempt in the early 2000 ‘s... hold the ketchup..please....one has to wonder did you ever live in a Cuban neighborhood.
  8. Thank you so much Heidi n Rick ....sorry about all the dumb asses that answered your post ...the Cuban Sandwich , Malanga fritters ,black beans .. the real deal... definitely a return visit ...lots of interesting choices on the menu . If you don’t like this Cuban Sandwich it’s because you don’t know what a Cuban Sandwich is..
  9. Bisbee gal ...they are frozen ,individually packed and quite large.....and no Chillin you cannot dry age or roast them !
  10. So easy to critique... I suggest you read or reread Roosevelts speech..... The man in the arena . .
  11. Costco now has duck breasts in three packs .
  12. Mudgirl.....I cant imagine why you would doubt anyone posting on this board.....really..?
  13. Great Video ....just a fabulous looking roast pig ... Some of the best traditional Cuban dishes done really well. That however is a fire roasting oven... A traditional Chinese box has no direct flame and relies on charcoal piled on top . It cooks real slow and takes about 4 to 5 hours to cook somewhat similar to a a Hawaiian pit roast . I lived in little Havana and probably tried just about every Cubano joints I could find looking For the. best medianoche ..the perfect late night or hang over food .
  14. Yep.... I can just see the health and fire inspectors In Miami allowing restaurants to have a 4 to 5 foot long plywood box covered in aluminum foil and topped with 20 pounds of burning charcoal in the middle of a restaurant kitchen never mind the smoke and your insurance company .
  15. Chinese boxes ( often homemade ) were used by the Cubans in Miami ,when I was a Chef there in the 70’s. to slow roast whole young pigs for “ Buena Noche “ The roast pork generally used for Cuban sandwiches is either leg or shoulder slow roasted , basted often with mojo .
  16. Plain and simple ...no mask...no brain".......Darwinian Selection at work .
  17. The Woks of life has been my go to site for the past year as I try to expand my oriental cuisine knowledge....authentic but not complex.
  18. Tom’s heart is still in Mexico .
  19. Mtn mama........ you guess...? it might of “ gotten “ out of hand and they are tired of “ it “...firstly..have you been up there recently or ever. ? ..probably not . Over the past 12 years or so , the trails are deserted most days...we may come across ...half a dozen or so people in 2–3. hours .Busier on the weekends with local families and young Tapatios enjoying this beautiful resource...The trails are almost 100 % free of trash..noticeably absent are also any signs of cultivation , grazing. ( we do see a few cows and an occasional horse or two ) or habitation .Mexican Law states...Ejidot
  20. .Unfortunately some of the most popular hiking trails have been closed off ..by the local Ejido population....for the last few weeks they have refused entry to anyone they do not consider “ local ejido “....In my opinion they don’t have the right to do this....just as you can’t close off a beach to the Mexican population ...you cannot close access to the Sierra Madres , This land...which they are custodians of was meant to be used for communal agriculture , grazing and homesteading..etc..Locally it’s pretty much abandoned... we hike into the mountains every week and have done so for over 10
  21. Looked better yesterday ( Monday ) definitely more product on the shelves....
  22. Good point about the Asian products...unfortunately that’s one of the only shelves that has been stocked...looks to me like it’s on its way out....shame
  23. Pancho was far more than a worker there... It was obvious who was responsible for the day-to-day operation of superlake . The store was clean efficient and well stocked, the staff was attentive ..Pancho was also extremely helpful in obtaining hard to find ingredients. As a Chef superlake was a contributing factor in our decision to move here . Since Pancho left the store it has gradually fallen apart...empty shelves untrained staff and little or no management. Exactly the opposite of what has occurred at Panchos new store .
  24. Was in super lake this a.m. looking for English muffins ...saw plenty of loaves of light rye in the freezer section
