El Siboney in Key West Florida

El Siboney Cuban Restaurant in Key West FloridaFate has an interesting way of showing up when you least expect it.

On a recent visit to Key West, Florida, we had picked out a local seafood place that was recommended by some friends. The day was nice so we decided to walk the eight blocks to the restaurant. You can only imagine our surprise to find out it was closed on Tuesday! (Note to self—Google can be your friend)

What to do?

Fate showed up at that moment in the form of a local taxi driver. He suggested a local Cuban restaurant called, El Siboney. I have to admit I was skeptical as the taxi dropped us off at this little hole-in-the-wall looking place on the corner of Catherine and Margaret.

Once inside I noted the Zagat Awards on the wall and the aroma coming from the kitchen was heavenly. We were quickly seated and a basket of fresh Cuban bread arrived. Now I really love bread, but this was up there with some of the best I’ve had. The waitress suggested we try a pitcher of Sangria. Served over ice with a slice of lime, it hit the spot after our walk in the humid air.

The menu was filled with all kinds of interesting dishes—fresh seafood, chicken, pork and beef—it all sounded good. I selected the Chicken Enchilado with yellow rice and fried bananas. Being from Texas, I was a bit surprised when the meal showed up. What happened to the Tortilla? A quick taste and another piece of bread and the thought of the tortilla was long gone. With a hint of spice in the sauce, it was a wonderful dish.

No visit to Key West is complete without a slice of Key Lime Pie. It was homemade and the perfect way to finish up the meal.

If you find yourself in Key West, stop by El Siboney and enjoy yourself!
