Beirut: Havana’s first Arab restaurant


Some years ago it was difficult to imagine a succesful Middle Eastern restaurant in Havana, but the Cuban gastronomic scene is growing up. We now have Havana’s first Arab restaurant, situated just in front of the Malecón. Owned by a Lebanese who imports most of the ingredients, the food is authentic and packed with flavor. The open kitchen allows diners to watch chefs cutting the meat from the shawarma and to follow the elaborate preparation of dishes. We recommend the falafel served with tarator sauce for a top texture and taste combination, while the shish – tender lamb or chicken kebabs served with deliciously smooth hummus and rice on the side – are a highlight. Don’t miss the rich, decadent baklava for dessert! Calle 1ra #237 e/ A y B, Vedado +53 78315883 +53 52924333
