Cuban food from Diner’s Drive-ins and Dives in Minnesota

Posted on: March 6, 2011

Victor’s 1959 Cafe in South Minneapolis was featured on Diner’s, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network channel. I went there tonight to try their featured items. My hubby and I split the “Ropa Vieja” which literally means: “old clothes”. This shredded flank steak is simmered in their own sherry-spiked Spanish red sauce with green and red peppers, garlic, onions and sweet green peas. Served with fried sweet plantains and accompanied by a sweet mango side of heaven. I also took the featured “Cubano sandwich” home that is shredded pork, mustard, pickles and ham on a to die for bun that I cannot even discribe. Randi our server was AWESOME and humerous! Great smiles, great service, and a great Dive!

The only thing I would suggest is to bring your own Sriracha (Hot chili sauce):0)

I agree hubbess. ;o) Needs more of a kick, but very good overall. It’s a bit cramped, so make reservations. Seriously. It’s TINY!
