Little Havana Cuban restaurant has been a Deerfield Beach favorite for quite some time. They’ve moved from the original location a few years ago and never missed a beat. Little Havana Cuban restaurant features authentic Cuban cuisine and is pretty large when compared to most Latin restaurants in the area, plus it’s nicely decorated making you feel very comfortable. Another bonus is that the place is very clean.
We got sat right away and our drink orders were taken. They dropped off freshly baked rolls (Cuban rolls) with butter. They were really good…fluffy and warm on the inside and a slight crust on the outside. They have many lunch specials here, a list that is served every day and one daily special. We all ordered off of the specials menu and our food didn’t take too long to arrive.
The first order was the Roast Pork special with black beans and rice. The pork was nicely seasoned and very moist with a nice portion for lunch. The fried pork skin on top was not overdone and was quite tasty. The rice was perfectly cooked and just begged for black beans to be draped over the top. The black beans tasted house made and we even found a bay leaf in the cup. We found the beans good, but just a little salty.
Next was the Little Havana Steak (medium-rare) with a side salad (you can substitute the beans and rice for a side salad). The steak was done to order, tender and full of flavor. The chimichurri sauce was excellent, so good they brought us a little extra. The salad was a good healthy choice with vinegar and oil dressing.
The third plate (there were three of us today) was the Thursday Special – Chicken and Yellow Rice. They asked if we wanted white meat or dark. We suggest you go for the white meat because the portion is amazing. This plate was overflowing with chicken and rice…enough for another meal later. The chicken was very moist and not overcooked at all. The rice was packed with flavor and had some onions and peppers in it as well. What a great value.
We ordered flan to go for later and it held up perfectly for the ride home. Delicate and sweet, this is an excellent way to top off the meal.
This is a great lunch option with some great values that are just too good to pass up. The service was good and the food quality excellent.
