A breath-defying orgy of garlic- and onion-rich foods awaits at this classic Cuban diner. Neophytes may want to start with the unimpeachable, impossibly crisp pressed Cuban sandwich; shrimp submerged in a heady garlic sauce; or the deep-fried yet juicy Caribbean pork chop. Warding off both dates and vampires never tasted so good.
