Cuban-Chinese restaurants used to be dime-a-dozen in certain parts of Chelsea and the Upper West Side, but few now remain. Traditionally, the Cuban half of the menu was great, while the Cantonese side (offering circa 1920s Chinese food) was awful. Dinastia is one of the few to survive, and the menu has been amped up the with the stray Sichuan and even Peruvian dish, in addition to chow mein, chop suey, and (our fave) fried wontons with spicy duck sauce. But, in general, the rule remains unchanged: Head for Cuban stuff like fried chicken, braised pot roast, fried kingfish, and yellow or white rice with black or red beans. This long-running place is one of the great Upper West Side bastions of cheap eats.
