Havana Harry's Review

When Cuban families want an affordable home-cooked meal with a twist but don't want to cook it themselves or go supercheap at the Cuban fast-food joint, Pollo Tropical, they come to this big, unassuming restaurant. In fact, you're likely to see whole families here representing multiple generations. The fare is traditional Cuban: long thin steaks known as bistec palomilla (a panfried steak), roast chicken with citrus marinade, and fried pork chunks; contemporary flourishes—mango sauce and guava-painted pork roast—are kept to a minimum. Most dishes come with white rice, black beans, and a choice of ripe or green plantains. The sweet ripe ones offer a good contrast to the savory dishes. Start with the $5.25 mariquitas (plantain chips) with mojo. Finish with the acclaimed flan.

    Sadly falling off.

    This was never anything special. (Truth be told, Cuban cuisine for the most part is little distinguishable at most Miami restaurants from the simplest peasant roots whenc it derives.)

    Havana Harry's WAS at least a nice, low-key, clean, comfortable, neighborhodd hang-out.

    Last I was there (5, 6 weeks ago) I had a truly miserably prepared chicken (a la vaca frita) and a draft Heinekin that was warmish and off-tasting.

    I won't return.
