Latin American cafeterias flock to strip malls like moths to a charbroiled flame, and this well-trafficked space has hosted Cuban eateries for decades. Diners plant themselves at tables that surround the restaurant's social center--a wraparound counter where waitresses quickly whip up espressos, pork sandwiches and hand-squeezed orange juices. The menu features 83 items, literally numbered, including chorizo omelets, plantain soups and lamb stews. It's authentic, and diners know it once they size up the mostly Spanish-speaking crowd.
