Rumor has it that the Barbaric Bean will be replaced by a Cuban restaurant.  But does that make sense?  We already have two in Asbury.  The best known is a fancy place on the boardwalk–Cubacan.  But there also is the lesser known Cuban Café  at 3rd Avenue and Memorial  Drive.  Address 1007 Memorial Drive.  We stopped by at an odd time mid-afternoon on Friday, so they were slow.

This place is authentic. The menu is in Spanish with English translation. You walk inside and place your order; then watch them cook. This eatery is spotless, and you can dine outside while listening to Cuban music.

A Grover who goes there regularly tells me that the oxtail stew is spectacular.  They serve breakfast and lunch, and there are daily specials. For example on Thurday they offer Fricassee de Pollo—-Chicken in sauce for $8.50. There are a wide variety of sandwiches plus an a la carte menu iincluding the famous Churrasco  (skirt steak) for $14.00 which is a great price for that tender speciality. They cater and they have a kid’s menu.

Follow them on Facebook.  Drive by and pick up a menu.  Hours are 6:30 am to 8:00 pm Sunday to Thursday.  Friday to Saturday is 6:30 am to 9:00 pm, and they deliver.   —-Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger
