"It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to close our restaurant. Some unforeseen things happened, and it was just too much for our little business to handle. We still have our food truck and will continue to run it. Thanks for the opportunity to show you what Cuban food was all about."
Although the menu, not surprisingly, is heavy on meat options, the vegetarian platter is a good choice for vegans with a healthy dose of black beans, yellow rice, green peppers, onions and sweet plantains. We found the platter to be filling and delicious.
There are also several vegan sides. We tried the Fried Yucca tossed in Mojo Sauce as well as Tostones. The yucca tastes like a potato and the Mojo sauce is a traditional Cuban marinade of garlic, olive oil and citrus. The Tostones are unripened plantain smashed with garlic and then fried. There is also a yucca dish sautéed with lemon that we haven't tried yet.
We love the sweet plantain and consider The Displaced Chef a place that we’ll come back to from time to time.
