We had a great time at Habana, on 21st St in Center City, last night. The place is fairly unassuming from the outside - can't really tell it's a well-designed little oasis on the inside. I think this might hurt their business.
Overall, we'd go back to Habana over Cuba Libre or Mixto any time.
- Mojito. Not too sweet. Perfect amount of lime. Could actually taste the rum.
- Grilled Cuban bread - crisp, a little buttery. Mmm.
- Special chickpea/chorizo soup for 7.50 was a rich meal unto itself. Would have been better on a wintery day, but I ate every drop.
- Fricase de Pollo - 12.50. Chicken simmered in red wine with olives, black beans and rice. Came with side of salty fried plantains.
No coffee or dessert this time, but we'll be back.
