Amelias del Mar

Cuban in Matanzas

Amelias del Mar brings tongue-in-cheek creativity to standard Cuban 'international' food through flashy presentation and then serves the concept in a neat open-air patio doubling as a lively bar. Here chicken fajitas become delicious trapos de viejas, or old lady's rags; shrimps are cuerpos revisitados – unearthed corpses. The sign outside just says 'Snack Bar,' but it's so much more than that.
