If you're in the mood for a home-cooked meal with, say, a delicious mojito to wash it down, make a quick trip down Old Columbia Pike to Cuba de Ayer. Don't let the Burtonsville location fool you: This Zagat rated restaurant is an ideal escape for some home-style Cuban fare. Pay $12 for $25 to spend on food and drink and learn why Washingtonian magazine has positively reviewed this family-run restaurant for five consecutive years. Order the crunchy grilled Cubano, served with a side of sticky-sweet plantains and buttery black beans. Or try the ropa vieja, a tangle of slow-cooked beef shredded and seasoned to perfection. Don't leave before gobbling up a slice of creamy tres leches cake with a cup of strong café con leche. It's not Cuba -- it's not even Miami -- but one trip to Cuba de Ayer and you'll start calling Burtonsville "Old Havana."
