Reviews by Kids: Islas Canarias

September 20th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in FunBlog, Reviews By Kids

This “auth?ntica cocina cubana” is a family-owned restaurant that has been in good business since 1977. And there’s a reason behind it: their amazing homemade food! This Sunday, I visited this restaurant for the first time. I had read on the internet that their dollar?croquetas were delicious, so I decided to try the ones with ham. And they truly proved to be “the best croquetas in the world”. One of the benefits of going to restaurants with your family is that you get to try several dishes at one time. So I was also able to try my sister’s?churrasco. My mom ordered a chicken salad; her only complaint was that the dish seemed to have been plated earlier in the day, drying out the tomato and pickle on the side. My dad’s favorite part of the meal was the delectable side of black beans and rice that has always been one of the stars of Cuban cooking.

This restaurant features a private room for banquets and business meetings, along with a few murals that I especially enjoyed studying. The largest and most prominent of these pays homage to several famous Latin music stars (including Celia Cruz, Willy Chirino, Israel “Cachao” Lopez, Gloria Stefan, and John Secada). Check out a picture of it on their?website.?The service was acceptable, although some of us were missed when water glasses were being refilled. In addition, the bathrooms were clean and neat.?Overall, I would recommend Islas Canarias for its family environment and tasty food.
