Consider hunting in Parque de la Ciudad for restaurant innovation...
Quite possibly the cheapest quality food in Cuba. This small, airy place serves four set dishes for just CUC$1.50. But it's far tastier than your standard fried-chicken ration...
A bartender named Eladio invented the Coctel Don Pepe here (two shots of orange juice, 1.5 shots of white rum and half a shot of crème de menthe, stirred) back in the day...
