Key West - El Siboney

Sometime back, probably 15 to 20 years ago, Penny & I took a trip to Key West.  We had a great time.  We did a lot of walking, and one day we got really lost.  I remember it being early afternoon, and getting very hot.  We stumbled upon a little restaurant off the beaten track and stopped in for lunch.  It had great Cuban food and wonderful Sangria.  We've talked about it off and on all these years.

So when we went back to Key West last week, we decided to try and find it.  We described it to a waitress in a local bar, and she knew exactly which one we were looking for, El Siboney.  So we took all our traveling companions over there for lunch.  I knew it was the right place as soon as we walked it, it smelled soooo good!

Anyway, lunch was great, and I'm glad we found it again.  It's very unusual in a tourist area like Key West, to have a restaurant stay around a long time.  But this one must be patronized mostly by locals.  If you get down to Key West, definitely stop in for lunch or dinner.

Pulled pork with onions, casava & tamale.  Notice the sangria with lime :-)
