Cuban Flavor on Chestnut Street

Hello my Foodie Followers….Tonight we dined at Rosa Blanca (www.rosablancadiner.com) located on the corner of Chestnut Street and 7th Street.  We arrived a few minutes before our reservation. The hostess greeted us and told us our table was ready.  We were immediately seated and left with menus and a cocktail menu.  After reviewing the menu for a moment, Dayna, our server appeared.  Upon her arrival we told her we were ready to order and surprised her to some degree.  We gave her our drink and food order.  Al started with a Flying Fish Beer and I had the classic mojito.  We shared a cuban guacamole with smoked pineapple and homemade chips and the croquetas de jamon.  The guacamole was delicious and smooth.  The chips were a mix of tortilla and plantain chips.  The croquetas were small ham filled pockets and deep fried served with a great dipping sauce.  For our entrees, I had the churrasco, a skirt steak with fries.  The steak was medium rare and lean.  The fries were incredibly thin and seasoned.  Both items were delicious.  Al had the cordero caribe, a curried lamb stew.  I tried the lamb stew.  It was flavorful and delicious.  Very tender in a great sauce.  We shared an order of the tostone, a crispy plantain with a peppery chutney.  Dayna brought us another order of drinks, I had a mojito with fruit this time and Al had another Flying Fish beer.  For dessert, Al had the tres leches, a chocolate cake with bananas and a mini scoop of chocolate ice cream.  I had a cafe cubano, a double shot of espresso with brown sugar.  Service was outstanding.  The food items were tastier bite by bite.  I award Rosa Blanca 4.5 out of 5 Diva Crowns.  Bon Appetit!
