Last weekend my wife and I went into the city to do some shopping. I had been fiending for some Mojitos lately so I decided to find a Cuban restaurant in the city. After doing some searching online I found a promising location. The restaurant I found was called Havana and it is located in the heart of ‘The Village’. The Village happens to be one of my favorite places to hang out during the summer evenings. I have to say it was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a while. The menu was great and fairly inexpensive. The food and mojitos were out of this world and they had a live band to boot. I had an appetizer from their menu which was shredded pork empanadas with a spicy jelly sauce that you could put on the empanadas, it was simply amazing. I left their telling my wife that I could sit there all night long listening to the music while they just kept bringing me an endless supply of mojitos and those tasty empanadas.
Matter of fact I am sitting here right now sipping a mojitos as I post this and making a batch of empanadas myself. I can only hope that my batch is half as good as what I had at Havana.
