    I arrived after 12 noon when they opened customers already inside ordering and delivery guys on motorcycles going in and out. I ordered 6 empanadas 3 pollo and 3 Lomo else I tried to order the dulce one but she said they dont have it. I ordered the lomo and pollo empanadas.

    The empanadas came in a couple of mins of my order hot. The one at La Cholita which is just next door was better, that Empandas was included with my steak dinner.
    7 empanadas 21 peso ,coke6.90=total 27.90

    Cumana: Queueing for food

    by Patriquito Written Nov 29, 2004
    Cuman�� Restaurant

    Very delicious local food is served. The prices are reasonable, though the portions could be bigger. Bread and Butter is always served. There will be a waiting line at night, be prepared to wait an hour until you get one of the tables equipped with wax crayons.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Locro. I don't really know what the ingredients were, but it's tasty and filling mixed something pot.

    Cumana: argentine of them all..

    it is very rarely that you could taste such argentine folk specialties of food as the ones you could get at cumana.. always a line to get in.. unless you go at 4 pm.. lots and lots of argentines eating it all up.. funny to see some timid types with their lonely planet guide sitting at a corner too.. did lonely planet put this restaurant in its guide?...

    Favorite Dish: Today i had a dish of rice with cheese and mushrroms in a casserole. my friend had casserole of calabaza with honey ..i have tasted many dishes in this place and always it satisfies..
    even though i dont eat desserts normally, today i shared a flan with dulce de leche.. rather sweet i thought--

    Cumana: typically Argentine food

    I just love the variety of dishes, many of them from the North of the country, I strongly suggest you try a cazuela...

    This place is extremely popular, so dont try to go there on a saturday night cos you ll have to wait an hour or 2 to get in.

    Favorite Dish: Pastel de calabaza y lomo al barro. (Pumpkin and sirloin pie)

    Cumana: local food with much local flavour

    the idea is to go there when the place is not crowded but it is difficult since it is crowded regardless of the time. i choose to go there to have unch around three pm and there are seats available.

    Favorite Dish: i begin with a couple of empanadas.. queso y cebolla and a lomo picante and follow it up with a casuela de berenjina o squash with honey..
    a glass of red wine or water with bubbles
    all this for less than a cup of coffee in miami.

    on 13th february my lunch was 8.50 pesos with a 150 tip that is a grand total of 3dollars and thirty cents us.
