1st rate Cuban Resturaunt in Florida

I'm used to traveling to places like Minnesota or North Dakota in winter, so I am very pleased to discuss my current winter travels in Vero Beach, Florida where I was taken to this wonderful gem. My first thought was that this must be a complete dive; it is, after all, crammed into the side of a filling station! Once inside, this is forgotten. The place was crowded (for good reason).

I had fresh grouper in "shrimp sauce" whatever that was. You can also see the charro rice and some of the best plantains I've had this side of the Carribian. My other four dining companions also had marvelous dishes, and much sharring ensued. As I've said many times in this forum, sometimes there is a direct inverse relationship between the best resturaunts and their exteriors. Chef Felix was also kind enough to give me a lesson on the correct preparation of plantains, somthing that until now has eluded me.
