Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

Here’s another neighborhood restaurant that we’ve been to a few times which we’ve enjoyed.  It’s the newest addition, the sixth, to this chain of Cuban restaurants – Metropol.  It’s cheap and cheerful and always packed which is always a good sign.   Metropol’s menu is made up of home-style food which they dub as Cuban but is a melange of Cuban cuisine with some Puerto Rican and Spanish dishes thrown in.  There are tortillas (Spanish-style omelets), meat and chicken cooked simply, rice dishes like paella and asopao, grilled fish and seafood and a selection of sides that include several ways with rice: plain or with beans, black or red beans, fried green or ripe plantains, cassava or for the unadventurous, green salad or mixed vegetables.  It’s good for lunch on a weekday when it’s not too crowded.
