Â¡Cuba! In Chestnut Hill
Elisa Ludwig visits Chestnut Hill’s Cuban restaurant Â¡Cuba! and enjoys the homespun, soul-pleasing cooking.”
Â¡Cuba! really hits its stride with a sort of Creole combo plate offered on special with a mound of moros y cristianos (white rice and black beans); a few wedges of fantastically tender, fat-fringed lechon asado (slow-roasted pork scented with oregano and lime); fried plantains (you have a choice of savory tostones or sweet maduros); and a boiled tamale whose soft cornmeal encases salty nuggets of roast pork.
