Village Voice's Description

Founded by a two Cuban women and an Argentinian man, Zafra is one of the rare pan-Latin cafés that actually works-that is, the dishes representing various cultures are true to their roots and also taste good. Select from a diverse menu of Mexican tamales, Peruvian ceviche, Cuban pressed sandwiches, Spanish tapas-bar standards such as stuffed red peppers smothered in cheese, and best of all, a nicely cooked Argentine skirt steak nearly a foot in length accompanied by fresh-tasting chimichurri. The sunny corner location and BYOB alcohol policy only add to the excitement.

    One of the top cuban restaurants in Hoboken. Family owned (along with Cucharamama a block away) this restaurant offers fantastic Yuca fries, Patatas Bravas and few others to start with as well as a variety of main dishes that are simply fabulous. Very small, but takes reservations and has outside seating in the summer. BYOB so bring wine as they make absolutley spectacular sangrias!

Tips from foursquare

    It's hard to go wrong with any of the small plates. And definitely give the gazpacho and Tamal de Pollo y Rajas tamales a whirl. Delish!

  • The Corcoran Group on 05/21/10

    Unbelievable Ropa Vieja and sweet plantains. Remember its BYOB.

  • GourmetLive on 10/18/10

    If you’re looking for one of the best bargains in this part of the country, show up during the week before 6 p.m. and get a three-course dinner, complete with rice and black bean soup, for $18.

    Ropa vieja lives up to its reputation

    This place is great- everything is good! Bring your own rum for mojitos or wine for sangria.
