Havana Cafe - Phoenix, AZ

Lunch 3/21/13

Mango Tea - Fresh brewed black tea steeped with fresh mangos and poured over ice. Very refreshing.

Calypso Chips - Plantains sliced thin and fried crispy. This comes with one of their dipping sauces, but I recommend trying at least one more. Their sauces are made on-site and are very flavorful.

Croquettas - You can try the traditional ham and potato version or try one of their unique chicken croquettas. There's nothing special about these other than being able to try them with some of the homemade sauces available.

BBQ Sandwich - This was a suprise. I ordered the Cuban sandwich and was really looking forward to this Cuban/American tradition. However, when my sandwich arrived, it was a BBQ sandwich. Who orders a BBQ sandwich at a local Cuban restaurant? Anyways, I asked the server about the mistake and she informed me that she thought I said BBQ sandwich, and that they didn't have the ingredients for the Cuban. The BBQ sandwich was good, but again, nothing special.

Overall the experience was nice, but if you have a good Cuban restaurant near you, don't expect to be "wowed" by this place.
