There’s always comments about how the food in Cuba, to say the least, isn’t high on a priority list of why we go to Cuba, and very often it’s actually “slammed”!
However, I’m sure many have had great experiences and I thought I’d start a thread extolling the good points.
Obviously it should appeal to anyone who likes to consume “Organic” foods.
I’ve never had a bad pasta dish in Cuba, and the omlettes are always great.
My wife goes nuts for their fruit, ESPECIALLY their pineapple
If you like seafood, it’s probably always fresh and there’s usually a nice selection (depending on the resort of course).
Cuban cuisine isn’t heavy on spices. I like to cook dishes that are traditionally heavy in spice (Curries, Oriental and Italian), but while some find food there bland, I find it very refreshing to actually taste whet you’re eating (be it meat, fish or vegetables) and not have the natural flavours masked by spices.
I think it was at Club Amigo Guardalavaca where I had a lamb dish that was by far, the best of any I’ve had in Cuba. I remember it was chunks simmered in some sauce and the “Natural” flavours were spectacular.
So, what are your good memories, or what do you look forward to, in regards to Cuban food?
