Morro Castle

Since 1966, family-owned Cuban cafeteria Morro Castle has been Hialeah's source for good, affordable bistec de palomilla, tostones, and moro. This Morro, which is not to be confused with the other Morro on Seventh Street, fries its shoestring potatoes to-order for its version of a frita Cubana. That's because owner Leo Villalba prides himself in making everything from scratch. And in case you have any doubts about the quality of his ingredients, there's a big sign that says in Spanish: "In this house, we work with the highest-quality products, premium Kraft shortening (cholesterol-free), and pure olive oil." Because everyone knows shortening is just so good for you.
