Las Vegas in Miami

My private table for one at Olivos had turned into a table for two and my favorite waiter wasn't on duty so walked next door to Las Vegas for Cuban cuisine. The 'comida del dia' was Ropa Vieja [one of my favorites]. This translates as 'old clothes' but is really shredded beef in sauce. I had it with a house salad and maduros, rice and black beans. Didn't know they had Arroz Moro as a possibility so would have ordered that; like my black beans cooked into my rice. Ate inside but had my cafecito cortado outside at a sidewalk table.

The winner was the house salad!
