This Wednesday from 12-4pm, plan on taking a lunch. Â Cafecito, a Cuban restaurant located on C and 12th, Â is offering a
free tasting of Ropa Vieja (Cuban style beef stew that takes five – six hours to prepare, made with pulled flank steak, fresh peppers, onions, plum tomatoes, freshly ground cumin and fried green plantains)Â and signature Flan.
Can’t make it on Wednesday? Don’t worry – the restaurant has some great specials going on this fall – just remember to call ahead to make sure the special is still going on before you head over. Â On Mondays and Tuesdays from 4-6pm, take 50% off all appetizers on the menu. Â My favorite special is from 4-7pm, Monday – Friday. You getÂ 3 courses including your choice of appetizer, entrÃ©e and dessert with a glass of their signature house sangria, wine or beer for just $18 – that’s cheaper than restaurant week. Yum!
