  • Ruben Perez, chef-owner of Zaza New Cuban Diner, was profiled in the 2014 issue of BITE magazine.

Zaza is continuing its march across the greater Orlando area. The beloved Cuban chain just announced a new location in Oviedo.

According to the Orlando Business Journal, the company signed at lease for the property at 1351 Alafaya Trail, the former home of tiny burger shop Burgerim.

The restaurant will be just one in a planned expansion throughout Central Florida this year. OBJ shared that Zaza is looking to open outposts in Maitland, Hunter's Creek and (possibly) Tampa.
