    Klein ist die Welt - Kuba 🇨🇺 Flair in Miami

    Little Havana ist das pulsierende kubanische Herz von Miami. Hier befinden sich lateinamerikanische Kunstgalerien und geschäftige Restaurants. Cafés mit Straßenverkauf servieren Zigarre rauchenden Gästen kubanischen Kaffee. In der Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) im Maximo Gomez Park, der im Volksmund "Domino-Park" genannt wird, diskutieren Einheimische bei einer Partie Domino über Politik. Im historischen Tower Theater werden unabhängige und alte Filme aufgeführt. Die Clubs der Gegend bieten lateinamerikanische Livemusik.

    El Pub Restaurant - Little Havana

    October 28, 2019 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

    Havana Classic Cigar Company

    October 28, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    “At Havana Classic Cigars we strive to manufacture the best quality cigars in the market. With two generations of experience and knowledge our cigars are made with precise detail to the art of a hand- made cigar. We use top quality Cuban seed tobacco from Santo Domingo, and Ecuadorian wrappers and binder, thus making this blend one of distinction. They are 100% Hand-Made by Cuban Master Rollers in the heart of Little Havana Miami, FL.”

    The Cuban Master Rollers were working at the front of the store. Of the two working the day we visited, one had 20 years experience, the other 30 years. They get paid by the piece and roll 100 pieces per day. And to prove their product is good, they smoke ‘me as they roll ‘em. Brian picked up a small box for his upcoming boys weekend, I bought a Cuban fedora.

    Cuban Memorial Boulevard - Little Havana

    October 28, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Stretching along SW 13th Ave just south of Calle Ocho (SW 8th St), Cuban Memorial Park contains a series of monuments to Cuban and Cuban American icons. The memorials include the Eternal Torch in Honor of the 2506th Brigade, for the exiles who died during the Bay of Pigs Invasion; a José Martí memorial; and a Madonna statue, supposedly illuminated by a shaft of holy light every afternoon. There's also a map of Cuba, with a quote by José Martí. At the center of the map is a massive ceiba tree, still revered by followers of Santeria (a syncretic religion that evolved in Cuba among African slaves in the 18th century).Read more

    Azucar Ice Cream - Little Havana

    October 28, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Azucar Ice Cream Company creates artisanal gourmet ice creams and sorbets in Cuban and tropical flavors in the heart of Miami's Little Havana neighborhood Whenever possible, they use locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables from South Florida farmers markets and growers from the Redland in South Miami-Dade County resulting in what they call a “farm to cone” product.

    We were treated to their super-popular Abuela Maria scoop which has ribbons of sweet guava paste, chunks of cream cheese and crumbled Maria cookies—a classic Cuban combination. So many flavors, would’ve loved to have tried their Cuban coffee and Oreo. How could that be bad. Guess it gives us an excuse to go back.

    Yisell Bakery

    October 28, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Pastries, both savory and sweet, are a huge part of daily Cuban life. We stopped at Yisell Bakery and sampled their pastelito filled with guava paste and cream cheese (or the Cuban equivalent). The pastry itself was flaky and tender and the filling was smooth, light, not too sweet, and incredibly flavorful. Our guide said that Cubans do not feel the need to prepare everything themselves and will pop into a bakery to pick up these pastries for weddings, parties or family gatherings.Read more

    Little Havana is Miami’s vibrant Cuban heart, with Latin American art galleries and busy restaurants. Cafes with walk-up windows sell Cuban coffee to cigar-smoking patrons. On Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street), locals discuss politics over dominoes at Maximo Gomez Park, dubbed Domino Park by locals.

    And what better way to explore Little Havana than eating our way thru it :-)
