    For a LA Cuban spot it's good! I only wish that the Cafe was done the Old School way, allow the milk to thicken in the Pot and then Poured into coffee. Other wise I really enjoy it.

    As an antidote to the hipster explosion that's happened along the rest of Sunset Boulevard, you could do worse than stop by for a meal at El Cochinito. Read more

    The Cuban sandwiches are great, and the specials board often has tempting offerings, but the must-have dish here is the lechon asado. Read more

    The only Cuban place I'll eat at in LA. I'm from Miami, so my standards for Cuban food are high.

    Ask for the Vaca Frita....it's not on the menu and they don't make it everyday....but when they do it's definitely the dish to get!
