Caja Caliente is the self-proclaimed inventor of the original Cuban taco, which is essentially just a seven-inch flour tortilla with generous portions of Cuban things like lechon and vaca frita. Both of those are good, though we prefer the vaca frita burrito—a ridiculous amount of crispy vaca frita, maduros, and congri melded together with mozzarella cheese inside a tortilla. The Coral Gables spot is little space that's good for a casual lunch and feels somewhere between a tiki bar and a seafood shack.
