Yummy Cuban Dishes You Must Try

Read more on "Yummy Cuban Dishes You Must Try" »

Cuba is extremely famous not only for its sparkling beaches, beautiful people and colorful nature, but also for its food. When you visit this country, the quality of food will surprise you a lot. The prices are affordable enough, around $7 in average. However, the prices can be much more expensive especially in such popular travel locations as Trinidad.

Cuban food was originally brought from Africa, Spain, Native American Taino population and Caribbean cuisines.

Medianoche sandwich

Medianoche (Classic Cuban Midnight)

Literally meaning “midnight”, this sandwich is one of the most popular dish in the country. It is made from Swiss cheese, pork, ham, pickles, and sharp yellow mustard and, of course, bread. What is interesting, bread made for this sandwich is different from a crusty baguette-like bread used for average European or American sandwiches.

It is called pan medianoche or pan sauve, and it tastes sweeter and softer. Despites its name, today medianoche is usually eaten on breakfast. This is the first and one of the most important dishes to taste while travel through Cuba. This sandwich is named so as it is often served in the top Havana’s nightclubs after and through midnight.

Note: Try this sandwich served with fried plantain chips, to make it extremely Cuban.

It is also often called “Morons”, and this is a dish which consists of black beans and rice. If you want to make this dish by yourself, don’t use canned bins. Never. The taste will be completely different, so you will not have a chance to enjoy the real taste of Cuban traditional dish. The black bean version is highly popular in Havana, one of the most visited tourist destinations on Cuba.

The ingredients of this plate are: bay leaf, bacon, olive oil, cloves garlic, fresh oregano, white wine and cilantro.

Note: the mix of rice, olives and beans is one of the most common Cuban dishes served in the families all around the country.

Vaca Frita

Vaca Frita

Translated as a “Fried Beef Steak”, or simply “fried cow”, this dish is often served with rice and beans (we have told you that this combination is a must-have for many Cuban recipes). Note, that it could be cooked with a lot of garlic, so you can ask a waiter to dial it down on request. This Cuban crispy, shredded beaf will leave you speechless!

Vaca Frita is served in almost all Cuban restaurants and the ingredients are the following: flank steak, onion, pepper, garlic, lime and olive oil.

Note: It could be also served with fresh pineapple juice, which make this dish even more tasty.

 

Huevos Habaneros

Huevos Habaneros

Literally translated as “ranch eggs”, it is a well-knows Cuban egg dish that is cooked with onions, pepper and garlic. They are also called “Eggs Havana Style”. The eggs on this dish are prepared over sofrito (a tomato, garlic, pepper, and onion sauce).

Note: These delicious huevos locos will drive you crazy with their tremendous taste. They are served immediately from the baking dishes.

Tostones

Tostones

They are also known as chatinos – crispy fried plantains. A plantain is a kind of banana, which is differ from the average one, as it is firmer and tastes differently. Tostones are extremely tasty when served piled with guacamole, salsa, and/or even shredded meat.

Note: Serve tostones as an appetizer for your main course.

Exciting Cave Nightclub in Trinidad, Cuba

Read more on "Exciting Cave Nightclub in Trinidad, Cuba" »

You may have heard of the wonderful city of Trinidad in central Cuba. It is known for its colonial history and old cobblestone streets.

Among the city’s major attractions are the Museo Romántico, Palacio Brunet mansion, Museo de Arquitectura Colonial, and Palacio de Cantero. But there is one spot that differs from anything else you can experience in this tremendous location.

We are talking about Disco Ayala, a very special party scene. Have you ever listened to DJ sets in the underground?

Maybe so, but have you ever done that in a natural cave – especially one that was once home to an infamous serial killer?!

Even if you are an experienced traveler and have visited numerous eccentric clubs and bars, this place will surprise you. The proprietors say the cave was inhabited by criminals long before the idea of making it into an entertainment venue crossed their minds.

Ayala nightclub. Trinidad

The club was named for Carlos ‘Coco’ Ayala – a notorious villain in Cuban culture who kidnaped children, took them to the cave, and eventually murdered them.

People say that during the War of Independence he brought many minors to the den and subjected them to various acts of cruelty. According to legend, Ayala continued his atrocities until locals finally captured and decapitated him. For many years afterward, Cuban mothers would warn their children against talking to strangers by saying: “Be good or Carlos Ayala will come looking!”

Today the place is not as scary since it has been turned into a popular modern nightclub – a favorite among Trinidad residents and visitors alike.

Photo: deposotphotos.com

To enter the club you walk down a dusty street leading to the cave’s entrance. After descending two flights of stairs and passing through a tunnel, you emerge into an amazing disco center. A large dance floor is set up in the middle of the cavern, and the flashing lights circling the entire area create a spectacular ambiance.

With loud Latin music and professional performers, the Disco Ayala is a place you should definitely check out while touring Cuba.
