Old's Havana

Does Epcot have a Cuba pavilion? If they build one, they should hire Old’s Havana to run it. This place is filled with Cuban tchotchkes, pre-revolution memorabilia, and the menu has descriptions of the island’s famous singers and actors. Most of the tables are outside in a back patio that looks like a Caribbean courtyard, with tropical trees and a fountain in the middle. But like Epcot, it’s a tourist attraction—a fun and vibrant one, but one nonetheless. And unlike Havana 1957 in South Beach (another tourist attraction), the food here doesn’t hold up. The vaca frita isn’t crispy, the mariquitas are stale, and the mojitos taste like water.
