Ropa Vieja

Wandering in DC I found Cuba Libre and ate this Ropa Vieja dish.

Those are fried banana nuggets on top, then a crispy banana cracker (how else would you describe it?), over a super-tender braised beef with tomatoes and peas and so on.

They also served a little bread basket with rounds that had been pressed and grilled, like a dense version of the bread part of a grilled cheese sandwich. I’m not doing it justice; I would go back for the bread basket alone.


Is it time for lunch yet?
