One of the oldest Cuban restaurants in our area, family-owned Padrino¬ís has been successful enough to open four branches, the northernmost one in Orlando. The simple, brightly lit d√©cor is more Denny¬ís than Little Havana, and while the expansion hasn¬ít necessarily improved the food, there¬ís still good chow at bargain prices here. Our favorites include the papas rellenos, mashed potatoes stuffed with ground beef, peppers, and olives and lightly breaded and fried; a warm bowl of caldo gallego, white bean soup with ham, potatoes, and collard greens; and Cuban pot roast fragrant with herbs and tomato sauce. Also available at this Plantation outpost: ropa vieja, churrasco steak, picadillo, and arroz relleno.
