So I wanted to meet a friend of mine for lunch, El Cochinito happened to be the center between both of our jobs, she had been there before, so she recommended it, but she did say it wasn't amazing, but good, so she did pre-warn me. I ordered the skirt steak and it was very dry and the flavor was not good, it tasted old, she had the ground beef and she thought the same, it just didn't have good flavor, she is Cuban and I am Puerto Rican, so we know good hispanic food when we taste it. Versailles was way better and it is a chain cuban restaurant, that's sad. Not to mention the service was just poor, the waitress just seemed bored and non-enthusiastic. I would not waste my time there again. If you want good Cuban food, there is a great place in Glendale called La Cubana, it's the best Cuban food I've had in LA and there is a great Puerto Rican Restaurant in Cypress called BIG ED'S. Happy eating.
Pros: rice and plantains were good
Cons: everything else was just ok
