|Paella, my favorite dish.|
|Texas Pete to spice things up a bit.|
Bread with butter was usually served first. Cuban bread is a white bread, similar to French bread or Italian bread with an outer crust and a soft middle.
|This bread was a little more crispy than some.|
|Croquettes and fried plantain chips.|
Often there was soup before the main course.
|Salad of cabbage, beets and carrots.|
The main course was usually chicken or some kind of seafood (fish, shrimp or lobster). And almost always with rice and black beans on the side.
|Chicken with mango sauce, rice and beans on the side.|
|Lobster and Shrimp.|
|El Floridita, Hemingway's favorite restaurant.|
|This paella was delicious.|
|Ice cream and a "brownie".|
But yes, all in all, I was quite pleased with the Cuban food. I'll have another post about our breakfast buffet in the Melia Havana Hotel where we stayed.
