Palomilla's Cuban Grill House

Staff Pick

What makes the Cuban cooking at PALOMILLA'S CUBAN GRILL HOUSE special? For one thing, its chef, Javier Salas, is Peruvian. Tidier than the usual cafe, Palomilla's offers some don't-miss dishes, such as the appetizer tamal, truly redolent of corn, served with a big tangle of pulled, roasted pork. Papa rellena, usually shaped into globes, is also somewhat deconstructed, with a free form from which a spicy picadillo erupts. Prices are cheap, especially at lunch, when daily specials are served. Among our favorites is Monday's chicken fricassee.
