Cuban food in the DC area??

Usually for Cuban food, I have to go to my house! There isn't a dense population of Cubans in this tri-state area, so your chances for a good cafe con leche or a pan con lechon are slim to none, unless you are eating at Casa Carmen! But there may be light at the end of the tunnel. One of the blogs I follow just posted a review of Cuba de Ayer in Burtonsville, MD. A bit far from us Arlingtonians, but the pictures actually look pretty authentic. I feel like a field trip is in our future!

That does look like the real deal. The tostones rellenos look delicious.

There's a great cuban place in Frederick, Maryland called "That Cuban Place." Seriously, worth a trip. I'll even TAKE you :)

Oh please let me know what you find. I would loooove to find a good Cuban restaurant here...although Casa Carmen is the reigning favorite so far ;).
