Breakfast, a Cuban or Crab Cakes?
This mighty big, handpainted chef probably stands 9-10 feet tall. His platter is also on the giant side and it holds a bit of everything you might find in a quick and cozy roadside restaurant in one of Tampa's hard working neighborhoods; this one is near the docks and marine repair facilities on the west side of the city. The food is so typical of a menu from these parts that it probably hasn't changed much for close to a century: eggs, bacon and toast; a thick, hot and pressed Mixto, or Cuban sandwich; and a plate of crab cakes. Plus, your choice of a Coke or sweet tea. A delectable menu that has something for everyone' taste and time of day. Filling and delicious.
