MexiCuban Sandwich

This combination of fresh roasted pork, Mexican chorizo, ham, swiss, pickles, jalapeños, mustard and mayo is one of the most popular dishes on the menu and for good reason. It perfectly combines Mexican and Cuban mainstays. Bring the vacation-style dish together with a Cuban iced tea, which is mixes coconut rum, tequila, mango, pineapple and triple sec.

Fresh Guacamole

What visit to a Mexican restaurant is complete without guacamole? Start a meal off right with a classic mix of avocado, serrano, onion, tomato and cilantro. But for those looking for something a little more adventurous, the Mango Cuban Havanero guac packs an extra tangy punch.

Huevos Rancheros Omelette

Although few would think of a Mexi-Cuban restaurant for brunch, this flavorful dish alone would prove them wrong. The omelette combines chorizo, pico de gallo, green peppers, jalapeños and jack cheese for the perfect kick to jumpstart your day. Pro tip: Pairing it with a Bloody Mary is a must.

Roasted Veggie Quinoa Salad

Looking for something on the lighter side? This tasty mix of romaine lettuce, avocado, roasted red pepper, artichoke, mushrooms, red quinoa and corn is tossed in a special Caribbean vinaigrette. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also vegetarian and gluten-free (but that doesn’t mean diners can’t add in chicken, salmon or shrimp).

Fajitas

This dish is sizzling hot–literally! Diners have the choice of chicken, steak, shrimp or vegetables as the main ingredient and can add in grilled peppers, onions, cheese, rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole or pico de gallo to create the ultimate Mexican medley. Order a Mighty Miller Place Mule (a mix of Ketel One Vodka, house ginger beer, lime and fresh ginger) to complete your meal.
