The Bistec de Palomilla Encebollada is a new option from the Cuban menu at Mikey’s

The Cuban chef here really knows what he's doing. Just had the Cubano sandwich today and it was probably the best version of it I've ever had.

Savory rellenos de papa, crispy yuca frita o hervida, and tender masitas de puerco adorn the new Cuban menu at Mikey’s. Newly-hired chef Freddy Caamal, formerly of Mambo’s Café, has unveiled the new Cuban menu as an addition to Mikey's regular offerings of more traditional American fare. Mikey’s and its new menu have garnered excellent reviews on both Yelp and Chowhound.

“The Cuban chef here really knows what he's doing,” said Mikey’s customer Derrick V. “Just had the Cubano sandwich today and it was probably the best version of it I've ever had. It comes with moist chunks of pork (carnitas-like) and a thick slice of smoky ham, mustard, mayo, pickles and cheese. The ratio of all the ingredients was perfect, just delicious.”

The San Rafael restaurant’s new menu includes tender pork dishes, Cuban-style steak options, and Puerto Rican-style sizzling fajitas. Each entrée comes with black or red beans, white rice, and a choice of green plantains (tostones) or sweet plantains (maduros). For seafood, the menu includes a seafood salad with fresh shrimp, calamari, and red snapper over a bed of organic mixed greens. For those with vegetarian preferences, the new menu at Mikey’s also offers a hearty vegetable platter with stir-fried vegetables, plantains, and rice and beans. With entrees priced at $13.95 and under, the new menu proves to be quite affordable.

Mikey's is open for breakfast and lunch from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and dinner from 5 to 9:30 p.m. on weekdays, and is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. Mikey's is at 783 Andersen Drive in San Rafael. For more information, call 454-MIKE (6453).
