“The food in Cuba is not so good,” said a friend who’s been. Liar!! I found plenty of awesome eats and washed it all down with copious amounts of rum. Here’s my photo gallery of eating in Cuba. Beans, rice, chicken, beef, lobster, shrimp, soup, salad, fruit, ice cream, eggs, pasta, pizza, ham, pork, plantains, potatoes, flan… and the COFFEE is heavenly.
I think the vegetarians in our Nat Geo group were getting a little tired of beans, rice, omelets and vegetable soup. And something to consider… the food in Cuba is not spicy. If you have expectations of cuisine closer to South of the Border, versus Caribbean, then just pack a bottle of hot sauce like Kathy and Jack did (which they generously shared). Wine? Besides Cuban, we found Australia, Chile and Argentina.
