    El Pub Restaurant - Little Havana

    October 28 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    A long-standing staple on famed Calle Ocho in Little Havana, El Pub opened in 1966 and was rebuilt in 1995. The menu features authentic Cuban cuisine with specials including ropa vieja, arroz con pollo, black beans and rice, picadillo criollo and flan. A cortadito makes a perfect after-dinner coffee. A colorful rooster sculpture greets you at the restaurant's entrance. We enjoyed both a beef empanada with a picadillo filling and the coffee. I must confess that, although not being a coffee drinker, I’m enjoying the Cuban coffee. Must be the sugar. :-) Brian says it’s a “gateway” coffee. Also, most of the restaurants have windows to the street where empanadas and coffee can be picked up which is typical in Cuba.Read more
