Re: “Palomilla's: Viva la revelation

Just thought I'd remind you of what another reviewer from your publication has to say about Papi's....and I completely concur: As for the food: Folks, this is the real thing. Everything we sampled from the menu was clearly made from scratch. Biting into a papa rellena, a mashed-potato ball filled with shredded beef, rolled in bread crumbs and deep-fried, I realized the papas rellenas I'd tried before were mere mockeries of this odd but delicious Cuban specialty. The crispy empanada was also heavenly; filled with a classic Latin combination of cream cheese and guava paste, it could have been dessert. They'd also be great for breakfast. Papi's bills itself as East Cuban cuisine, but the differences from typical Cuban are subtle. In place of the more traditional sliced pork on a Cuban sandwich, Papi's substitutes shredded pork marinated in its "secret recipe" mojo sauce. It's terrific: The sweet, smoky pork really stands in the hodgepodge of other ingredients on the sandwich. Another specialty is the hallaca, a Cuban take on the tamale. Bits of pork and spicy peppers stud the fragrant, steaming cornmeal filling.
