Is the Tastiest Flan Mexican or Cuban?
Whether or not you like this Latino dessert, it's as ubiquitous as palm trees in Cuba or cacti in Mexico.
Many of us grew up eating — or altogether avoiding — flan, that caramel custard treat often served on birthdays, holiday celebrations, and really almost anytime dessert was required. Both Mexicans and Cubans claim to have the original take on the sweet, so clearly we had to have a blind taste-off to decide which is best. Enter a Mexican, a Cuban, and a neutral guest to sample a couple of Yelp’s top-rated flan-offering restaurants in New York City, Mexican Radio and Cuban Café Cortadito, and put the argument to rest. Ready, set, taste!
