925 Nuevo’s Cubano’s – Cuban Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale

Sign.jpg

925 Nuevo’s Cubano’s, a Cuban Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, was built in 1976 by Valdes’s father, Luis Valdes Sr., the restaurant is actually the front portion of the family home where Valdes grew up (his great-aunt still lives in the building). Now, food is cranked out of a tiny open kitchen surrounded by a bar spanning the front. As a kid, Valdes helped his father prepare Cuban cuisine, learning the secrets of a great mojo marinade, succulent roast pork, and – of course – life.

Gathering strength from his father’s lessons, Valdes powers through his day. Prep begins early in the morning, the small crew (Valdes, his wife, Marta, and the couple’s longtime friend Betsy) making beef and chicken empanadas and croquetas de jamon, the Cuban way. Valdes roasts six legs of pork a day, low and slow for 16 hours. The pork is the secret to the Cuban sandwiches here.” Instead of slicing it,” Valdes says, “we pull it, which keeps it extra juicy.” Valdes has recently added a new sandwich to the menu, “The 925,” featuring a “secret sauce” he makes with red peppers he grows himself and cooks in the sun. More of a spicy, vinegary relish, it goes well with just about any savory item on the menu.
