There's not much room to dine in, but takeout and delivery are great options for the kind of slow-braised pork dishes and simmered beans that make the area's Cuban food so beloved. From steam trays and refrigerator cases emanate dishes that are family-friendly and crowd-pleasing. Pepo's signature slow-roasted pork comes with two choices from the soups (cumin-touched black bean, rib-sticking Spanish bean or soupy red beans), yellow or white rice, veggies like slowly caramelized plantains or green beans dotted with bits of ham, or Cuban bread and butter.
