It’s been a long weekend. A long weekend of drinking, that is. Sorry, Mom.
I’m gonna make this short.
We went here on Friday night, knowing only that we wanted to go somewhere in the Los Feliz area. We were kind of wandering aimlessly until we found a good place. Making eyes with actresses Kristen Bell and Kelly Lynch on the way. I.H. was pissed she did not see Kristen. Almost a night ruiner for her. In fact, I should check in with her. She may still be pissed.
Cuba Libre was dead. Not a good sign. Across the street, Figaro Cafe was jam packed and jelly tight as my friend J.B. says.
The folks inside Cuba Libre were very nice, they almost begged us to come in. We did. The all night happy hour enticed us.
I ordered the Mango Avocado Jicama salad and Chicken Empanadas. Both were excellent. J.B. and D.M. split some pork dish which was also quite tasty. The meat was very tender. I.H. ordered the popcorn shrimp and plantains.
Too make a long story boring, everything we ordered was great. Not life changing, but I would go back if I had nothing better to do. Plus, I feel bad they never seem to have many customers. Of course, I’m basing this on the ONE time I’ve been there and not knowing anyone who’s ever been there.
