Trinh and I went out for dinner a couple of nights ago. We strolled up to Greenwich Village, stopped in a bar for a couple of drinks then sat down at a Cuban restaurant. It was a great little place with a buzzy atmosphere. Neither of us had tried Cuban food before and had no idea what we were in for. Turns out Cuban is simply Mexican food without the cheese and fat. Pretty simple. You got your beans, rice, chicken, beef etc all served up without the ingredients that block your arteries. Trinh and I declared Cuba to posess an all round successful culture of food. Of course, we declared this after a couple of glasses of tasty Sangria so who knows what the hell we were on about.
Cuban food….take it from Castro, it’s worth falling head first for!
