Iska Gener left Cuba in 2008 at age 24. His circuitous path to the United States via Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Brasil, and Mexico over the next two years served as introduction to mainland, Latin American cuisine and her various dinning customs. After finally arriving in Austin, Texas in 2010, Iska began working at popular Cuban restaurants. Iska’s honest and hard-working character, coupled with his fun-loving and generous personality were an immediate fit. As a result, his natural talent for the restaurant industry quickly led to a successful management role which he held for the three years ending in 2014. With this background and a trove of family recipes, Iska formed his own vision for a Cuban establishment in Austin, whose philosophy, “Simple, Fresh & Homemade” would resonate in Austin quest for authenticity.
