Located right off the 405 in the far inland reaches of Redondo Beach, Havana Mania is a family-run Cuban restaurant. The place is always full on the weekends with a crowd that gets progressively more drunk on coco locos (young coconuts with rum inside) throughout the afternoon and evening. This isn’t the best Cuban food you’ll ever have, but if you’re looking for a solid plate of roast pork and plantains, Havana Mania is a decent option in the South Bay.
