As for the interesting sounding Mojito chicken, what really sold us on it was the promised addition of mango salsa on the side. Well, we’ve been tricked, we’ve been backstabbed and we’ve been quite possibly, bamboozled. Yep, the promised mango salsa was conspicuously absent. Still, the braised chicken thigh was moist, juicy and rather enjoyable despite its uninspiring aesthetics. The mojito sauce, which is actually a dark rum reduction, tasted a lot like mango concentrate at first. As wrong as it sounds, however, the sauce rapidly grew on me, and I quite enjoyed the sweet, fruity sauce with the tender thighs.

One universal problem that both dishes shared were the vegetables. I was actually rather pumped to find that @cubalibre.cq had put in a decent bit of effort & arrayed a marvellous medley of veg on the plate. There’s broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, asparagus, squash, cauliflowers & cucumbers coexisting on both plates, and that’s quite the rainbow of vegetables. Unfortunately, the effort ended up half baked, as the vegetables weren’t dressed at all. Heck, they weren’t even seasoned, unfortunately.

Still, despite unseasoned, undressed vegetables, Cuba Libre’s mains aren’t too shabby for the price of admission. Besides, Cuba Libre’s on #burpplebeyond, and two of these for the price of one? Consider me convinced!

Thanks for having us, @cubalibre.cq & @burpple!
