For more Americanized palates, there are burgers, sandwiches and simple salads, plus a half dozen vegetarian options. For dessert, choices include the sticky toffee pudding and a deep-fried chocolate bar of the day. Weekend brunch options include a haggis omelette.
Featuring an extensive menu and daily specials, such as seafood stew (asopao de mariscos) and fish in coconut sauce…More (pescado con coco), El Oriental de Cuba has become a haven for lovers of Cuban food in Jamaica Plain.
The cheery interior and salsa music soundtrack set the right Caribbean atmosphere for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are some vegetarian options available, too. Check out the "La Esquina del Sabor" -- the "flavor corner" -- at Centre and Paul Gore streets.
