    Palomilla's Cuban Grill House (Permanently Closed)
    What makes the Cuban cooking at PALOMILLA'S CUBAN GRILL HOUSE special? For one thing, its chef, Javier Salas, is Peruvian.

    What makes the Cuban cooking at PALOMILLA'S CUBAN GRILL HOUSE special? For one thing, its chef, Javier Salas, is Peruvian. Tidier than the usual cafe, Palomilla's offers some don't-miss dishes, such as the appetizer tamal, truly redolent of corn, served with a big tangle of pulled, roasted pork. Papa rellena, usually shaped into globes, is also somewhat deconstructed, with a free form from which a spicy picadillo erupts. Prices are cheap, especially at lunch, when daily specials are served. Among our favorites is Monday's chicken fricassee. less...

Ironic, then, that the chef at PALOMILLA’S, Javier Salas, actually is Peruvian. No matter. The new cafe features the best Cuban food Atlanta has ever seen. Lunchtime specials, such as chicken fricassee, are ridiculously inexpensive. The papa rellena — stuffed, deep-fried mashed potatoes — is a heavenly mixture of textures and flavors, with picadillo seeming to erupt from the loaf-sized appetizer. Other standouts: tamales, roasted pork and a mango pie that is without peer anywhere. less...

    LAS PALMERAS may also be the best value in Midtown. The tiny, ambiance-free restaurant — not surprisingly located in the neighborhood that was home to Atlanta’s invasion of Cuban refugees in the ‘70s — serves inexpensive, savory home-style cooking. Our favorites remain the masitas de puerco, the boliche and the fried chicken. The tamales are the best apps; the flan is flantastic. On a temperate evening, the patio is idyllic. less...
