We invite you...
Between August 3 and 26, 2018, 11 bars and restaurants of the Historic Center of Old Havana will put to your consideration a tapa of their creation, always accompanied by a glass of Casillero del Diablo wine.
The participants who follow the Route will be able to taste exclusive preparations, designed to highlight the values of the Cuban culinary culture. At the same time they will be able to know and appreciate the richness that the gastronomy of that area of our capital has amassed in recent years.
The combination of a tapa and a glass of wine (in a volume not lower than 125 ml), will have a fixed price of $ 3.00 CUC. No extra amount will be charged for the service.
Those who participate and consume at least 8 tapas of the 11 in competition, will enter a raffle that offers 3 first prizes, 3 second prizes and 24 third.
Among these are boxes and bottles of Casillero del Diablo wine, tattoos and posters of contemporary Cuban designers courtesy of La Marca, cromantic dinners, cell phone recharges courtesy of Fonoma, t-shirts courtesy of Clandestina, event t-shirts pulóveres del evento, bcustom bags by Procle, among others.
