My husband and I just recently moved to Spartanburg from a big city, and since we absolutely love trying new restaurants that aren't part of a big chain, we were thrilled that we found this delicious Caribbean gem in the area. The food was amazing and tasted like a home cooked meal. We had never tried Cuban food before, and the owner was so kind to take the time to describe the different dishes which suited our taste. I had the spicy pork with a side of yellow rice, beans and a corn side dish and it was so delicious and filling. It was just spicy enough and full of flavour! My husband had the barbacoa beef with rice and beans and the yuca with mojo and he was thrilled with it as well. I also had a mango batido and it was the best shake I have ever had in my life, hands down. Finally for dessert (can you tell we stuffed ourselves??) I had the coconut flan and my hubby had a Cuban coffee and which were both absolutely delicious. Best flan I've ever had, other than my mom's :)
I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a declious and culturally unique dining experience in upstate SC. The owner is enthusiastic and welcoming and Coming from a bigger city, we were a bit worried about our food options, but having found Caribbean Sweetness was a major relief. Try it for yourself: You will not be disappointed!!
