Episode 16 :: La Gloria Cubana

I don’t pimp restaurants too often, but I have to give some love to one of my favorite breakfast places because we visited there recently and I wanted to share this place with you. It’s an old restaurant called Felix’s Continental Cafe and they specialize in Cuban food. It’s a hot spot for breakfast and there’s a ton of outside seating. Listen to the show now.

Cuban cuisine is a mix of many different types of Cuisine – mainly Spanish, African and Caribbean. Cuban recipes share spices and techniques with Spanish and African cooking, and they’ll use some Caribbean influence for spice and flavor.
