However, when it comes to Cuban, ropa vieja,- which is stringy pieces of beef in a tasty sauce- your palate is begging ‘more please!’ Get ready to dig into this scrumptious traditional dish.

 

Ingredients: 

2 1/2 Flank steak 

5 tbsp. Olive oil

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Live from Cuba: Beating the Heat

The weather here in Cuba can get a little warm during the summertime. Locals regularly comment on the 90º weather, saying ‘que clase de calor!’(It’s so hot), dragging chairs outside on the sidewalk in the early evening for a breath of cooler air. For visitors from cooler climes, the temperatures can be too much to handle.

Our Girl in Havana: A City for Cinephiles

Eating my ice cream at Coppelia, I can’t help but think of the striking first scene of Oscar-nominated 1993 Cuban film Fresa y Chocolate. The title refers to flavours of ice cream, one representing the gay and creative while the other represents the straight in both sexual and political terms.
