El Tropical Café & Market near Carrollwood is open after it closed for a year. The family-owned grocery store now offers more cafeteria-style Cuban food for customers on the go. Today we ordered the small lunch (roast pork, black beans, yellow rice) for $3.99, café con leche ($1.50) and a beef potato ball empanada. The total bill was was $7.48 . There also are $4.99 and $5.99 lunch plates for bigger appetites.  The Cuban sandwich we tried a few days ago had fresh tender roast pork ($3.95) and was delicious. If you like to dine in, the neighborhood grocery has a few tables and chairs for customers.  El Tropical Café & Market accepts credit cards and is located at 8931 N. Armenia Ave., Tampa, FL 33604 just south of Busch Boulevard. Under new management, Armenia Grocery LLC, the business phone number is 407-410-7660.
