Padrinos

I’m not from Southern Florida, and am no where close to what you would call an expert when it comes to Cuban cuisine or where to find the best spots.  However, I know good food when I eat it, and Padrino’s was good food.  I count Cuban food as some of the best in the world, the Cuban sandwich, dirty rice, ropa vieja, carne frita.  I love it all.
