I am Cuban. I have live in Charlotte for 25 years. There use to be a "real" Cuban rest. in South Charlotte in Pineville. ...and on Albermarle Road there was a "fake." I use to take my clients to the one in Pineville. They loved it. From what I understand, there were management issues involved as to why it closed.

I know of some rest. locations that available for you.

My family and I are looking forward to your coming soon...

Hello Momds. There's a Cuban restaurant in Concord. The restaurant is called Havana-Carolina Cafe. Address: 8 Cabarrus Ave. Concord 28027. Phone number is
(704)793-4233,(704)633-8281. Listen ,I haven't been there yet--Probably this weekend. If you go sooner, please let me know if it's any good.It should be good since the owners and cooks are Cubans from Miami. Don't forget about me.

Yvonne.

Hello Himain. Did you try spanishtoys.com. They have the Bi-lingual Cocina Criolla book for about $25.00. Check it out. Hope it's the one you've been looking for.

Yvonne.

I know that barnesandnoble.com also has access to another distrubutor that can get the bilingual book for $159.00. Check out barnes and noble if you're willing to pay that price.

I think the Cocina Criolla that is going for $150 or so is the one by Nitza Villapol, cuban woman, who I think is d e a d already, maybe that's why it's expensive.

Puerto Rican seasoning and foods is not the same as Cuban.

Hey I have a couple of those Cocina Criolla books. One got flooded but it dried up so the pages look a little wavy. The other is brand new. I had no idea this book could cost so much. Wow! I will have to put it in my Will.

The only book that I have known as cocina criolla was the one with the PRican recipes. Sorry is not cuban at all!

Maybe you can find similar plates with different names but the cooking methods and spices are a little bit different.

Good luck finding "the bible" in cuban cuisine :-)
