The Skinny on Sergio’s New ‘Flaca’ Menu

Authentic Cuban cuisine is not exactly the best choice for the weight conscious, but Sergio’s new La Flaca menu could change all that.

Putting a healthy spin on their “simple, fresh and homemade” motto, you can now choose steamed vs. pan-fried, brown vs. white rice and baked vs. deep-fried. The new skinny menu boasts no trans fats or salt, and does the portion control for you.

Start with a baked, whole wheat chicken empanada using only natural ingredients for $1.95. Breakfast items start at $3.99 and are under 295 calories. The South Beach Omelet with egg whites, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and low sodium turkey is sure to satisfy.

Low-calorie tapas and salads featuring La Flaca salad spritzers start at $3.75. The Cuban Cobb salad is a winner consisting of a spring mix with avocado, roasted corn and black beans.

The Cuban flatbreads (starting at $4.99) are quickly becoming a customer favorite at under 450 calories. They include: grilled chicken topped with black bean hummus, Serrano ham with mozzarella and Huevos Campero (eggs) with fresh spinach.

At under 575 calories, the entrees feature Marinated Garlic and Herb Chicken ($8.99) and grilled or blackened Mahi Mahi (market price). Each comes with a side salad and a side (black beans, brown rice, or steamed veggies).

Small changes, such as using cooking spray to reduce calories, has contributed to Sergio’s commitment to continuously evaluate their menus and offer healthier selections that do not skimp on taste.

Response to the new fanfare from patrons has been “buenisimo,” said Pedro Acosta, general manager at the London Square location in Kendall.

With the calories you save on food, you can afford to share one of their traditional desserts from the regular menu. Maybe a flan ($3.99) or tres leeches ($4.25)?

Buen provecho!
