El Pub Restaurant
Enjoy Cuba’s Famous Drink
This place isn’t La Bodeguita in Cuba, Hemingway’s favorite watering hole, but the drink at this local Taverna is as close as you can get without a passport.
Ball and Chain
*Sometimes we serve the mojito depending on availability at other locations.
You can’t leave the neighborhood without trying the best Cuban sandwich in Miami! Layered with two kinds of pork, loads of melted Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard – this Cubano makes our city proud!
Ball and Chain, Olds Havana Restaurant or Salao Restaurant
Made daily from scratch, this Cuban favorite puff pastry filled with a tropical fruit called guayaba is smooth, light, not too sweet, and incredibly delicious.

Los Pinarenos Fruteria
Salty, Sweet & Crispy
Let’s face it, churros are a heavenly invention – they’re crispy on the outside, soft and salty on the inside.
Local’s Favorite Snack
A savory Cuban household staple, don’t leave Miami without trying one of the best rated croquetas in town.
