Cuba: Tourism and Gastronomy

Cuba, one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in the Caribbean region, offers hundreds of kilometers of excellent beaches to thousands of foreign vacationers who bet on the Cuban archipelago to spend their vacations.

Exuberant nature, culture and history are part of a one-of-a-kind tourist offer that also includes gastronomy.

The development of Cuban society for more than 500 years is present in several gastronomic options that have become part of the country's traditions.

Cuban cuisine has been enriched by European dishes, mainly from Spain, France and Italy.

Asia and the Middle East are also present in recipes from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arab and Indian cuisine, just to mention some exquisite dishes served in Cuban restaurants and cafeterias.

Among the Caribbean Island's tourist offers is La Terraza de Cojímar (Cojímar's Terrace), a bar-restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea and closely linked to US Literature Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway.

Hemingway and his regular companions are always present at the restaurant in the form of cocktails such as Don Gregorio and Daiquiri Hemingway, which are indispensable to accompany the dishes on the country's best seafood menu.

Another world-famous restaurant is La Bodeguita del Medio, which is regarded as the mecca of roast pork and Cuban typical cuisine.

La B del M, as it is also known, is a few steps from Cathedral Square (207 Empedrado St.), a busy area in Old Havana. The restaurant is also famous for its Mojito, a mix of Cuban light rum, mint, lemon, ice and sugar.

The specialties of the house are roast pork, "moro" rice (rice and black beans) and cold beer. However, the most popular dish is cracklings, which are excellent to accompany a good drink.

Another famous establishment in the Cuban capital is the Restaurant 1830, which is on the western tip of Havana's Malecón (seafront) and which was inaugurated in the 19th century.

The 200-seat Restaurant 1830 offers several rooms that can be turned into private spaces for special occasions.

The restaurant serves a wide range of world-famous liquors, wines, chocolate and excellent Havana cigars to finish a good meal.

In Havana's Chinatown, which marks the presence of immigrants from that Asian country, many establishments serve excellent Chinese food.

The restaurants in Chinatown also serve European dishes to meet the demands from vacationers from the so-called old continent.
