Along with drinking Miami dry, I was also on a mission to consume all of the Cubano Sandwiches I could find! So the first free day we had in Miami, Al and I headed straight to Havana 1957 Cuban Cuisine (a new chain of Cuban restaurants) and grabbed a seat outside. This place is full of character: beautiful music playing in the background, vintage Cuban photographs dotted around the place and above all, super-friendly staff.
I ordered the Ultimate Mojito. You are able to select which rum you would like in your mojito, so I chose Don Q Anejo rum. From here it is mixed with sugar cane and Yerba Buena. This cocktail was amazing! Don Q Anejo is really light with nice almond, honey and caramel tones; which I loved. I also tried the Zacapa 23 option but I found that Don Q Anejo went down a lot smoother 😉
Variety of rums
There is an abundance of rum options here! Rum lovers will have a ball with all the varieties they have on offer! I would post them all here but it will literally take up all of the page… so here is a terrible, unedited video:
I ordered the Cubano for $14.50 US. Ham, cheese, roasted pork, pickles, and mustard on Cuban bread, comfort food at it’s best. I was a little taken back by how much this sarnie cost (around $20 AUS) but when I saw this bad boy, I could see why it cost so much… it was HUGE!!! Honestly, I could only eat about half of it because it was so gigantic! It was tasty though, I just hated leaving so much waste at the end.
Havana 1957 Cuban Cuisine is a little on the expensive size, which was the only downside. I think I would have preferred if they served smaller portions and charged less to be honest. Saying that, if you are planning on visiting, you will find Havana 1957 Cuban Cuisine on 405 Espanola Way, Miami Beach, Florida. If not, do not fear as I will be posting a video of my experience here soon 🙂
