The choice is easy here. Chopped, roast pork. Pork tacos, a port torta, or pork by the kilogram.

I first stumbled upon Carnitas La Nueva Esperanza searching out El Varadero, a Cuban restaurant that takes a great deal of searching to eventually find. A guy here finally gave me the right directions. I ordered a pork taco to hold me over til I made it to El Varadero. It was fantastic.

I made it back to Carnitas La Nueva Esperanza this year. Between visits Yamaha built a showroom that totally blocks the view of Carnitas La Nueva Esperanza from the main road. Business seems to be brisk though. This place is a favorite for the cab drivers.

One of my favorites too.
