Lonely Planet review for La Teresita
At this Cuban cafeteria, grab a stool at a horseshoe-shaped counter (ignore the separate restaurant) and experience the 'real' Tampa. Locals from all walks of life get their Spanish comfort food here: bay leaf–steeped black beans, neon-yellow rice, fried plantains, grilled steak with onions and peppers. Add a dash of hot sauce. Perfection.
