Errands brought me to Ponce de Leon Ave. and I realized that this was my opportunity to try Papi's. I had heard about their Cuban cuisine. Upstairs is for takeout, downstairs is for table service.
Although I was tempted to try their Cuban sandwich, I decided for the chicken special. The plate contained chicken, potato, rice, beans, plantain, salad, and Cuban bread. The chicken was wonderfully tender and very well spiced. The spicing carried over to the potatoes. The beans were a little thinner than I expected but went well with the rice. I'm a sucker for the plantains----these were crispy on the outside and sweet on the inside.
