A few of Cuba's restaurants...

These are some of the restaurants in Havana where I ate:

Hotel Telégrafo for cocktails. This was our first night in Havana. We had a welcoming mojito here in a restored hotel's bar. The mojito was to become my favorite drink.

El Palacio St. Angelo for dinner and then lunch my last day. For my birthday dinner we had Cream of Pumpkin soup, Lobster skewers, Roasted Potatoes, Rice, Black Beans and a Torte for dessert ...and then... a birthday cake.

Casa del Campesino in Las Terrazas in Pinar del Rio where they cooked rice, beans and ropa vieja over the open fire.

Aguada del Pasajero for 'crocodile' sandwiches coming/going to Trinidad del Cuba. On the way down it was chicken and the way back tuna. The sandwich bread looks like a crocodile and is delicious. What a great stop on the highway.

El Tocororo for Cuban jazz and a final dinner. We had a great meal of beef, rice, mashed potatoes and vegetables. Lots of mojitos. The music was so smooth and the singer was beautiful. I sat with the 'crew' and my favorite, Vivian our guide.

Also ate Pasta Carbonara with Shrimp at La Dominica for Italian food and El Aljibe for a vegetarian lunch.
