Hard to believe, but it has been six years since my last review of Zafra. We have continued to patronize this restaurant for the same reasons that impressed us on our first visit. Everything is fresh, homemade and simply delicious. Ten dollars buys you a pitcher of virgin sangria-bring your bottle and enjoy this wonderful mix with fresh fruit.
On our last visit we had the following:
Arepas- different with the fennel touch
Cuban Tamal- other than my mother's, never had better
Soup-Cream of caribbean pumpkin, cubed cheese, roasted cacao nibs, crème fraîche-my favorite
"Venezuelan breakfast"-shredded beef, white rice, black beans and 2 arepas
Picadillo (Cuban sloppy joe)
Dessert- tres leche- I was not thrilled with the merengue, the cake was good
Her rice pudding is also excellent (not available that day)
Zafra is not big in square footage. Zafra's abundance is in the rich flavors and diversity of it's Latin dishes. Love it!!
