The restaurant tonight was at an amazing paladar very near to our hotel in the Vedado neighborhood, one of the most important commercial and recreation (night life and cuisine) in Havana. Because no one knew if the rain was gone or coming back, we dined inside the large home instead of the large veranda overlooking a nice urban garden. Called La Moraleja Restaurant, the cuisine was Cuban but with certain international styles. Huge portions of rice, fish, meat and vegetables kept arriving.
