Insight Paladares: Doctor Café, Havana

Doctor Café is perhaps Havana´s most non-descript fine dining experience.  The name inspires images of sandwich nibbling and coffee sipping on a Parisian sidewalk.  The setting, a back patio in the residential neighborhood of Miramar, feels more homely than haute cuisine is accustomed. 

The first hint that you might be about to indulge in some serious culinary skill is when the waiter recites the menu.  From that point on, it’s all about the food.

90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started. Nothing surprising so far, we Romanians do the same once we land to safety. The difference was I had just landed in Cuba, on a plane full of Americans, myself included. The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window.
