Cilantro Dip

Versaille's is a Cuban restaurant located in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, Fl. If you ever go there, you must try some of their very Cuban delicacies. The outside window serves delicious guarapo or sugarcane juice, a shot of strong Cuban coffee & Cuban pastries. If you want a quick snack of Cuban Sandwich and pastries, go to their bakery cafe next door. If you prefer to be seated and be served, then go inside and be immersed with animated Spanish conversations all around you. Try Yucca Chips with Cilantro Dip as an appetizer. If you are a seafood connoisseur like me, do try their "Kingfish". It's for the very first time in my life, I ate "Surmai" in any  restaurant in the United States. It was delicious and fresh. and to finish off your meal, you may want to try Dulce De leche or Tres Leche Cake. Don't forget to take a small parcel of their plantain chips for munching later.

Today's cilantro dip is inspired from Vesailles' signature recipe. This is just my version. Serve with any fritters of your choice.

1 bunch cilantro
