Havana – Hole In The Wall 4 – Bistro BHK

31 Mar



 nfc capAfter so many great eating places, it’s about time to present the only dud hole this trip : Bistro Habana Kohly or BHK.

Punch Joe wanted me to check this place out and arranged for an ad hoc lunch with good friends.

The place is specially recommended for meat on a hot stone, if you like that, and additionally it has a good menu.

BHK promises more than it delivers – it was OK but has large room for improvement as I see it.

The first would be to put shades / sails on the patio or else you fry in the sun. Even when you started out in the shade …

We tried pulpo for starters and while the first portion was excellent, the second was a disappointment being just oily, salty and overfried.

Same happened with the main course, filet of Emperador – it came out dry, overcooked and drowned in sauce.

Happened with the vegetables as well.

Who better to judge such discrepancies than Sarah, the cook who was with me for the lunch.

OK, so the place is new and has to settle in – but if they want to keep me ( and Rod Stewart ) coming back, they should improve, pronto.

I’d only go there if I was staying around the corner, but might check it again for progress.
