Visit six family owned and operated Cuban restaurants to sample the fresh flavors of the local cuisine.
The Calle Ocho area of Little Havana provides an overview of the neighborhood’s traditional flavors — favorites like homemade mamey and flan ice cream, chicken- and picadillo-stuffed plantain cups, guava pastelito, plus coffee, guarapo juice and much more.
Many of the Cuban dishes are prepared from family recipes that have been handed down from one generation to another. This tour includes more than just food, however.
Meet some of the Cuban artists in their studios, listen to some traditional Cuban music and watch skilled Cuban cigar rollers at the El Credito Cigar Factory. Also, visit Maximo Gomez Domino Park, a landmark on Calle Ocho.
The tour concludes back at the Agustin Gainza Arts and Studio.
