First Cuban Restaurant Opens in Bend 

  • Lisa Sipe

Diners can find Cuban food at a few restaurants in Bend, but Cuban Kitchen is the first with an all-Cuban menu. Owners Cristina and Chris Rojas moved to Bend recently from Little Havana in Miami, Fla. They say they couldn't find the Cuban food they love, so they opened their own restaurant. If you want to taste one of the national dishes of Cuba order the ropa vieja—shredded flank steak in a tomato-based sauce served with white rice and maduros (sweet plantains). Keep it traditional and pair it with a beer. The menu also has the popular Cubano, but Cuban Kitchen calls it a Cuban press. Think of a panini but with Cuban bread, roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and potato stix. Until the end of July you can stop in for a free colada, or sweet Cuban espresso.
