Last night’s birthday dinner at Pambiche

Dinner last night at Pambiche was fantastic!
To start with we had the Croquetas de camarones

Croquetas ~
Camarón ~ Pink Shrimp aromatic with fresh Mediterranean herbs.

Sorry, no photo of the croquetas but they were delicious!

I thought I ordered the Plato Cubano but I messed up and ordered the Comunista. So they brought me the meat on another dish.

Plato Cubano ~The typical Cuban plate. Adobo marinated roast pork, served with your choice of Cuban beans & rice. Dinner served with yuca con mojo.
Plato Comunista ~
The contemporary Cuban plate. Your choice of Cuban beans & rice served
with yuca con mojo and your choice of ensalada caribeña or ensalada de remolacha

Rabo Encendido ~
“Oxtail On Fire”. Tender oxtail braised in a spicy red wine sauce. Served with
arroz blanco; dinner served with frituras de maíz.

Maíz con Pollo ~
Corn and chicken stewed in a garlicky salsa roja.

Alemán ~ Coconut chocolate cake laced with saoco syrup and sandwiched with a
caramel peanut filling. Glazed with Oaxacan chocolate ganache and topped off with
typical Cuban peanut candy. Served with crema chantilly.

  1. Wow! Everything looks & sounds yummy! Wish I lived a little closer…..

  2. Jackie, Hope the rest of your birthday was as fantastic as the food! Wow, I was hungry before but now …… Oh well, dinner is only an hour and a half away. Don’t you just love Mexico!

    That slice of Portland is looking much better than when I lived there! Nice to see

    Happy belated to you!

  3. Jamqueen. It was wonderful. I asked Tara and Kelly if they wanted to share a dessert but by the time I was half way through my dinner I changed my mind. Tara was set on having dessert so we did. I had 4 or 5 bites of the cake which really was 3 too many. It was delicious but oh so rich!

    Mimi- how long ago did you live in Portland? Many old rundown areas have become new hip and trendy areas. The food was really good and my leftovers will still be great tomorrow night for dinner.

  4. Jackie…You know I’m on a diet!! I may have to walk another mile today from just looking at those pictures. Can you say Lust????

  5. That looks wonderful! My tummy is growling!

  6. Laura and Brenda,
    It was sinfully delicious especially the Aleman cake.
    My leftovers were still very good tonight for dinner.
