Cuban Food

Went to Hackensack to try Caribbean/Soul food and ended up across the street at Casual Habana and was pleasantly surprised. We were immediately welcomed at the door and shown to a table along one of the natural brick side walls. While the waiter handed us the menus and opened our wines, we had a chance to take in the atmosphere which is casual,,,not necessarily cuban inspired but anywhere cafe. Some background cuban music would be a nice addition.
A basket of fried plantain chips with a garlic aloli was brought to the table and they were addtive. Our appetizers,,chorizo ala Plancha—sauted chorizo with carmelized onions was very good and the Croquestas Caseras didn’t have much flavor. My husband ordered Rabo Encendido (chef recommended dish) which was oxtail simmered in brown gravy. It was tasty and tender but no spice as indicted on the menu. The two sides he ordered,,,Black beans lacked in flavor, but the sweet plantains were excellant.
I ordered Lechon ala Patria (another chef recommended dish) which was shredded pork with carmelized onions. It was a very generous portion and very flavorful. For the sides I had dirty rice and house salad and both were very good. I took home more then half my dinner.
The staff was friendly, efficient and answered any questions. The chef/owner walked around greeting and inquiring about our dinners. We were very happy with our overall experience and would certainly return to try more menu items.
