Broken English or Broken Spanish; Spanglish Cuban Kitchen is our way of life.


Our Mission at Spanglish Cuban Kitchen is to introduce Cuban-American dishes, made with the best quality, freshest, sustainably sourced ingredients available. Welcoming every guest into our little Cuban kitchen, feeding their souls with our vibrant culture and dishes that were taught down by generations of our mothers and grandmothers. 



Spanglish Cuban Kitchen is a fast casual, locally sourced, Cuban food concept that initially was conceived while living in New York. The dishes the couple wanted to showcase in Spanglish Cuban Kitchen were dishes they both ate while growing up in Miami. These dishes brought passion and soul onto the dinner table, where we as a family, shared memories about our history and vibrant culture, listening to classic 50’s Cuban music playing in the background and mom always had dessert.



Our names are Tomas and Lynda Prado, proud owners of Spanglish Cuban Kitchen.  Tomas is a classically trained, Cuban-American Chef who always aspired to open a fast-casual, Cuban American cuisine concept in Charleston, South Carolina in honor of his heritage and love for his family.

In his culinary career, Tomas has worked alongside some of the world’s most renowned Chefs including Daniel Boulud, Jose Andres and most recently has worked as the chef at Andrew Carmellini’s wildly popular rooftop restaurant and lounge “Westlight” in Brooklyn, New York.  His wife, Lynda, of over 15+ years, comes with an extensive background in hospitality, human resources and she also has a serious sweet tooth. Lynda will be bringing most of the sweet offerings at Spanglish, such as her mother's rice pudding.
