The refrain you’ll hear over and over again from Cuban expats: Old Havana’s food is just like what momma used to make. As classic Cubano music plays in the background, you’ll tuck into slabs of garlic bread before beginning your culinary journey: ham croquettes, cod fritters and voluminous entrees like shrimp with yellow rice and Cuban-style fried pork chops. Don’t skip over the sandwiches—the owners make their Cuban bread in-house—and be sure to end the meal with the cream-filled churros. The decor is minimal, but that’s partly the point—you haven’t gone out to eat, you’ve gone home to eat with family.
