Little Havana

Little Havana
This fall I made another trip to Miami Beach and I enjoyed some new and lovely meals and drinks in that tropical paradise.

A wonderful long weekend with a visit from a friend started in Little Havana - no we did not eat at Burger King, but it's a pretty good summary of the building style in that particular area of Miami.

Lunch time found us in a busy litlle restaurant - Exquisito Restaurant - obviously a place for locals we were the only ones struggeling with the Spanish menu and the only ones speaking English to one another.

We shared two dishes: Filetillo de Pollo, Arroz Blanco y Maduros- chicken pieces sauteed in a light soy sauce served with fried plantains and white rice and Enchilado de Camarones, Arroz Blanco y Maduros - shrimp in a tomatoe sauce with a hint of some kind of fruit - also served with plantains and rice.

It looked like a lot of food, when it was served, but we made pretty good dents in both dishes and ended up sharing a small very strong and sweet cup of Cuban coffee - much like it's served in Greece.
