Caja Caliente’s original Edgewater location is a food truck-turned-permanent outdoor restaurant. The space has mismatched furniture, an endearing pack of feral cats, and enough space to host a pretty large group of friends - just bring some beer because they’re BYOB. This place serves “Cuban tacos,” which are seven-inch tortillas filled generously with things like lechon, vaca frita, and grilled shrimp. Plus, there’s a very good pan con lechon with crispy potato sticks.
Caja Caliente is permanently closed.
