Versailles (Culver City)

By in 13: Culver City

DSC04343.jpgDSC04347.jpgHeard much about this famous Cuban restaurant in LA, for it is quality, traditional cooking and value. It is famed for the garlic chicken and pork. The place is packed though fortunately no line because we were late. Long ago I mentioned about the Cuban Malta drink. Here it is again, the label saids “A non alcoholic cereal beverage”, it does taste like drinking cereal (because of the wheat flavor) ;D.


The buttered garlic bread are very good. Chuletas de Puerco (Grilled Pork Chops) – Marinated in citrus juice with garlic mojo sauce, sauteed onion and herbs. The sauce is just the right sourness. The aroma is just heavenly. The pork is juicy. All dishes came with plantains and rice. The rice are all oxtail stewed, gosh love it so much~~


Lechon Asado Classic Cuban roast pork marinated in garlic mojo criollo sauce, I taste a bit and it’s really good, more tender, I like it more than my pork steak. The chicken breast is a bit dry.

    What mojo?? All the meat looks really good~~even the rice and bread are all seasoned that you probably can just eat them alone? How perfect! But how come yours and your friend’s are both pork yet yours is not as tender??? Different ways of cooking??

    I know…’mojo’ haha~ it’s their special magical sauce~
    my friend got the roasted pork, mine is the grilled pork chops, must be the way they roasted that makes the pork more tender. I’ve tried Cuban garlic pork once before, in comparison this one is so much better~~~
