Rice and Beans
When Carlos Ramos opened Rice and Beans Cuban
Cuisine, his goal was to offer his customers in the
Cypress area something they never had before:authentic
In the year after opening, Ramos said his food has added to the diversity in the area, drawing in customers from different counties.
¨We didn´t see a restaurant in the area that served this type of food,¨ Ramos said. ¨¨There is lots of diversity in the people here, and we wanted to offer something new. We have customers from many different countries:Mexico, Salvador,
America and Cuba.¨
Ramos moved to the Houston area seven years ago from
Miami, bringing the city¨s diverse flavors and atmosphere to his own establishment.
Along with offering new flawors, Ramos is proud to stand
out among other eateries as the firts Cuban restaurant in the
area that serves freshly cooked food daily.
Rice and Beans has diverse menu choices that highlight a
variety of Cuban Creole flavors with beef, chicken, pork and
seafood dishes such as shredded beef topped with seasoned Cuban sauce and served with sweet and tangy plantains.
The menu also includes a veriety of wines from Italy and
Portugal as beer , along with mojitos with tropical fruit flavors.
However, good food is not the only thing that keeps customers coming back, Ramos said.
¨There are three things that are important to me about
owning a restaurant: cleanliness, good service and fresh food,¨ Ramos said. ¨We want everyone to have quality food
so that are customers are sastisfied with what we offer.¨
