Cuban cuisine draws on a number of influences, but menus are often constrained by a lack of ingredients. Here are five traditional dishes to watch out for.
While the name of this dish may translate as “old clothes,” it’s a lot tastier than you might think. Shredded beef in a tomato-based sauce might not sound elaborate, but it’s the simplicity that makes it so tasty.
You’ll find these everywhere around Cuba, and they’re well worth a try. With ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard, there’s taste and texture to spare. The best ones come pressed like a panini.
Look out for these potato balls on sale from small kiosks in towns and cities around the country. They are usually filled with a ground beef mixture, but you might also find them with cheese.
Fricase de Pollo
This chicken stew is simply delicious and a favorite on menus across the island. It’s a hearty affair that might seem a bit out of place in the Caribbean, but once you try it you’ll see why it’s so popular.
