La Isla is a great Cuban restaurant in Hoboken: cheap with great cuisine. So we were thrilled to bring Valentin to that place for what would be another discovery.
We sat at a table, more convenient than the bar to share dishes when more than two people. The service was very quick and we got some very good comforting food.
We started off with beef empanadas, a must have.
The crust is flaky and a bit crispy, and the inside, made with beef and some tomatoes, moist and slightly salty.
Tostones (smashed plantains twice fried):
And yellow rice with pigeon peas:
The portions were enough for the three of us. I love to eat all the dishes together, sometimes eating some empanada with rice and beans or maduros with beans, using tostones like I would a piece of bread.
The food was, as usual, delicious! La Isla is really a great Cuban restaurant if you are in Hoboken.
Enjoy (I did)!
