A Lo Cubano Kitchen is the brainchild of Chefs Yojan Gonzalez, originally from Havana, Cuba, and Lisa Plasencia, a Cuban American from Miami. The two met working together at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami. They have gone on to start their own family and business in Orlando, Florida. Together they started this venture in Central Florida in order to create inventive Cuban cuisine with authentic flavors and a modern twist on classic dishes. Staying true to their roots, this husband and wife duo “bring a taste of Havana’s Malecón and the flavor of Miami’s Calle Ocho to the streets of Orlando.”1 From handcrafted croquetas to the beloved Cuban sandwich, A Lo Cubano Kitchen has allowed Yojan and Lisa to share with others their Cuban culture, which has informed so much of their identities. After opening in August 2017, A Lo Cubano Kitchen has garnered numerous accolades, including second place for Best Food Truck in Orlando by Orlando Magazine, two awards for Best Entree, two consecutive years nominated as finalist in the Best of Orlando by Orlando Weekly, and they were recently featured in Bite Magazine. Yojan and Lisa continue to create and redefine what Cuban food means to them, but they never steer away from the traditions that bring people together, namely, a love of good food. It is this notion that is at the heart of what they do. Their passion for quality food drives them to create new and exciting dishes that represent not only them as individuals but their Cuban culture as a whole.
