This traditional Latin stew is a favorite in many Spanish-speaking countries. Our Cuban-leaning version is made by cooking ground beef with black beans, olives, capers, tomatoes, raisins, and a mix of aromatic herbs. It's served over steamed white rice and comes with fried plantains and salsa to compliment the dish.

Plantains did not look like the picture - in fact, I'm not even sure there were any plantains in this. There were flat, rolled things that didn't taste sweet. Overall a disappointment. Will not order this again.

It was ok, the plantains were hard, but the meal itself was flavorful...I hate olives! I wasn't a fan of the ground beef concoction...It was like eating sloppy joes, didn't go with the rice & beans. I was hungry! Don't think I will order again.

Very good! But it was really small in my opinion. I'd order it again if it was a little bigger.

Me tried to eat it the day after it was delivered but when we went yo heat it up, we noticed it smelled like it was spoiled. We through it out because we were worried it was bad.

I love this dish. So many flavors...each bite is different.

Very tasty. The beef stew portion was small, would have been better with less rice and more stew.
3 Stars
No seasoning on rice and beans. Side too sweet.
3 Stars
tasty but portion is small. Ground meat is used so not sure why portion can't be larger.
5 Stars
The dish is great but the portion is a little too small.
4 Stars
The dish was tasty. I wish there would've been more salsa. Maybe the same sized container as the onions. Btw, the onions were good.
3 Stars
Rice is dry and hard. The meat is ok. It did not have a strong Cuban flavor whatever that means. I was expecting more complexity in the sauce. - Elaine

Enjoyed this tasty meal. More cilantro would make it 5 stars
3 Stars
Piccadillo scoop was small and rice portion was pretty blah. Flavor of picadillo was pretty good and could have made the dish good if there was enough to save the larger bit.
5 Stars
Amazing but portion size was not enough
4 Stars
Dish has a good kick/spice to it. The side salsa was too spicy for me. The rice was a little on the dry side, but overall a great dish. Wish the portion size is bigger...

I have been explicitly asking for delivery to my apartment yet they drop off my order downstairs? The delivery fees isn't justified and I would like that refunded on all my previous orders in the last two months. I don't want this to be a legal

Much improved.

Bland. Needs more spices.
4 Stars
not bad! i was afraid the salsa would be super spicy (i'm a spice/hot food wuss) but it was actually necessary because otherwise the dish would have been super bland. portion slightly smaller than i expected.
4 Stars
Really flavorful just needs more plantains. Two little slices isn't enough!
5 Stars
This might have been the best munchery meal we have ever had: a wonderful variety of tastes and textures. Absolutely delicious! Thank you!
3 Stars
The plantains were either over cooked or their quality wasn't there (origin, source, etc.) "Not blaming the chefs". For my taste, I would prefer they were of the sweeter variety, cooked in water then basted with fresh garlic and olive oil.
5 Stars
Very good but pretty confusing as to know how to eat it if not plated. I wanted to mix the rice with the meat and there is not enough room to do so in the current packaging. Also I didn't know how to us the salsa as the meat already is in a sauce.
2 Stars
Not very good, rice as super undercooked and cold.

There was no meat

Decent, meat portion small, plantains oddly bad. Eh, I am picky about picadillo.
5 Stars
This was delicious, the optional spice was too spicy for me so I didn't use it, but it was still very good anyway.
5 Stars
Filling and delicious, flavors are on point. Will definitely be ordering this again!
4 Stars
Food was great! Lack of nutrition info and ingredients list on the packaging is the only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5.

This was good and flavorful. We enjoyed it and will likely order it again. Plantains were a little tough/dry.
