Food and drink in Cuba
It may come as a surprise that while Cuba is an island, seafood dishes don’t typically get top billing on most local menus. While traditional Cuban dishes such as ‘Congris’ (a tasty mix of black beans and rice) offer a taste of local homemade food, there are also a few interesting twists on American classics, such as the ‘Frita’ - a Cuban-style beef burger, ground and mixed with chorizo.
