El Siboney

900 Catherine St., Key West, FL - (305) 296-4184

Similar to chili, picadillo is a spicy ground-beef dish that usually contains olives. It is served like so many Cuban specialties, with yellow rice and caramelized plantains. Black beans come in a separate bowl.

Off the beaten path in Key West, El Siboney has long been a place where locals and savvy tourists go for excellent, inexpensive Cuban meals.
