Cuba Absolutely Guide To Havana

5 Feb


nfc capWith just 2 weeks to go before I take off for Havana again, it’s time to get started on the events programmed there and the cultural news, also – which paladares are hot and which are not.
Here’s the link to Cuba Absolutely magazine and its What’s On in Havana guide for February 2013, which can be downloaded, – including cultural events and restaurant guide – interesting for all visiting Havana this month :

    Don’t forget the new tapas place in old Havana…el Chonchulero I think. Great food and everything less than 5 cucs, but only about 30 seats!
    Also the brew pub down by San Francisco had very nice beer if you get tired of Bucannero & Cristal

      Hi Dara,

      will try El Chanchullero – haven’t been there before so : thanks for the tip !

      Still consider El Templete to be # 1 in Tapas though…

      Never get tired of Cristal and if I do I switch to Santiago or Mulata rum 🙂
      If you mean the brewery in Plaza Vieja : Touristy, lousy food and the warm beer is nothing to write home about.

      Being a lover of Octopus, this place below has caught my interest and will be tried ( from What’s On in Havana ) :

      Garlic octopus at Doña Eutimia: This paladar has a lot of “ups” — it has actually been acclaimed by major news organizations such as The New York Times, and the Daily Beast called it one of the best 101 restaurants in Latin America (what about that?)
      True it is good… it is good Cubanfood.
      But the garlic octopus is beyond good, it is amazing.
      Make sure to order extra bread for this appetizer, because you will want to dip it into the wonderful garlic-infused olive oil in which the octopus is served. Don’t miss it!
