For almost a decade I have explored Havana's culinary scene as a founder of Alamesa - Cuba's leading restaurant search and discovery service - I have witnessed its evolution and learn its secrets. All I know about how this business roll in Cuba, the techniques, the tricks, the places, and the people, I learned it by doing, in the most entrepreneurial way possible. I'd love to share with you my experiences and findings while interacting with restaurants and bars in Cuba. I also co-created Ruta de Tapas Habana (Havana's Tapas Route), the first and biggest tapas and drinks competition in Cuba. Its goal is to highlight the burgeoning restaurant scene of the city in all its creativity and presents it to locals. I'll introduce you to it.
Together we'll tour through Havana's Tapas Route. I'll take you to 5 different restaurants included in the competition, and we will enjoy their creations. I'll help you discover and understand the flavors included in the tapas and share with you elements about the selection of the places and the organization of the event, as well as tips to help you enjoy the Route and enhance your culinary experience while in Havana. I will bring the unique perspective of a host that is also an organizer and an insider.
We'll meet outside the Cuban Building of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Trocadero Between Zulueta and Monserrate in Old Havana
Trocadero 207 e/ Zulueta y Monserrate, La Habana Vieja
We'll visit 5 of the 11 restaurants of Old Havana, included in the 2019 edition of Havana's Tapas Route.
This event is about fun, no need to dress up. We are also going to walk quite a bit, so wear comfortable shoes and clothes. It is hot in the summer, and we'll drink wine. Make sure to communicate if you're feeling tipsy. Ask me any questions you may have in advance, please. I'm always available.
