Good news! There's no need to schlep all the way down to Miami (AKA Cuba) to get authentic, tasty Cuban eats, like those yummy sandwiches with ham, marinated pork, Swiss cheese, and pickles. But why grab a sandwich when you can really dig into some hearty stuff like savory sautéed shrimp in garlic sauce, crispy bistec à la Milanesa (top round that has been seasoned, breaded, and deep-fried), or the truly inspired arroz con pollo? Pair any of the aforementioned with one of the natural fruit milk shakes or juices made from papaya or mango, then end your pig-out session with steaming cups of café Cubano, cortaditas, and café con leches and a jiggly serving of caramel or coconut flan. Now, Havana isn't ultramodern, by any means, nor does it do a Disney job of replicating its namesake city, but the two-story dining room is comfortable, simple, and relatively tasteful. But really, the best part about this place is the 24-hour walkup window. We know there's nothing like feeding that 3 a.m. Cuban craving with a steaming box of smoky croquetas, vaca frita, and sweet plantains.
