Chug’s is a small, casual spot from the people behind Ariete - and much like their sister restaurant, the food here is great. This place is a lot more recognizably Cuban, though not necessarily traditional. The excellent pastelitos are stuffed with peanut butter and guava jelly, the Cuban sandwich comes on sourdough with honey ham, and there are four versions of the frita topped with things like avocado and barbecue sauce. They also serve simple Cuban breakfast plates for under $10, which you can eat inside or outside on the patio.
