La Casita Cuban Cuisine lives in the shadow of nearby Cuban comida giants Versailles and La Carreta. But this is part of the little establishment's appeal: no tourists snapping pics, no cheesy mass-produced portraits of Cuba lining the walls, and a noise level that doesn't require shouting at your date in between bites of yucca frita. Décor is pleasantly mellow and muted. Mustard yellow leather-upholstered chairs surround glass-top tables, and natural light filters in through large windows during the day. On weekends, a live singer croons old-school Cuban ballads while diners (mostly viejitas, admittedly) reminisce. Dishes are decidedly traditional - crowd favorites include bistec de pollo ($10.95), a thin marinated chicken breast topped with sautéed onions, and tasajo ($9.95), Cuban-style shredded beef jerky sautéed in a tomato, pepper, onion, garlic, and white wine sauce. There are also "special orders" of more complex dishes available, such as arroz con pollo ($17.90), a paella of yellow rice and chicken that requires a wait time of 45 minutes. Specials change daily, and there is a separate children's menu of "baby" steaks and chicken.
