Eat like you are in
Cuban cuisine isn’t just about what you eat though. It’s about the experience of making and enjoying the food and about who is around the table. Cuban cuisine is best when shared with friends and family.
Since Cuba was colonized by Spain, Spanish cuisine has had a profound influence on Cuban food. Other culinary influences include various parts of Africa and France.
We have our typical meals, with steamed rice, black beans soup and sweet plantains. And you must try our famous roasted pork dish, Lechon Asado, our Cuban-style shredded beef, “Ropa Vieja, “ and “Fricase de Pollo,” our chicken stew. You also can’t forget the Cuban sandwich — a variation on your typical ham and cheese sandwich — but this time also with roasted pork, pickles and mustard — that’s sure to please. Save room for one of our tropical desserts and finish the dinner our way with a “Cuban Coffee.”
