Pilar’s Version: Modern-Traditional Cuban Food

At Pilar, our goal is to make the best version of traditional Cuban food we can. It’s not gourmet, fancy or fusion: we get the greatest satisfaction from perfecting traditional Cuban dishes. We call it “modern” as well because today’s food culture is very different then it was a few generations ago, where cooking was a bit simpler and less fussy. For example, most Cuban kitchens, weather home or professional, used chicken bouillons for their stocks instead of making their own.
