We did the Pollo Tropical Dinner tonight. We tried their new Avocado Tropi Chop. Took my Uncle Oscar Rivera to have a family dinner at Pollot Tropical. We had a good dinning experience on the Opening Day of Pollo Tropical in Little Havana, We had been at the place too for Lunch with my daughter Aleli. I tried the Mojo Pork and it was really Good. So I can say we enjoyed our Pollo Tropical experience. It might become one of our fav places to hang out.
I was born in Miami. ( Hialeah, Fl). Came to Little Havana since a little girl. My Godfather Osvaldo Rivera Rivera pumped gas for people at an old fashioned Perez Amoco on Calle Ocho. It was a gas station that would still pump gas to people. I would often be there as a little girl and experience the amazing Calle Ocho block party with my Godfather. He was friends with the owners of the Pinarenos a mom and pop fruit stand in the heart of Little Havana. The beauty of it was that the owner knew my Grandfather in Pinar del Rio , Cuba. Little Havana has always been like a small town in the big city. My godfather came from the era of Cubans fleeing in the Freedom Flights. My grandfather never came from Pinar del Rio, Cuba. My mom and uncles did. .....Little Havana has so many memories for me.....
Yesterday took the Miami bus all over the area and saw a bit of what this area is like in 2015. Will it be the same in a year or ten? I'm documenting Little Havana and the area in 2015. Yesterday took some pics and got a more expanded view of Little Havana. Got to give a couple from San Diego a tour of Little Havana . Giving them a little bit of the feel of the mom and pop shops, introducing them to my dad who is an 80 year old Cuban Exile ( US Citizen already) and letting them know more of what Little Havana is like. We have the Arts, Music and a mix of Cuisines....
