We're in Miami and we're inspired by the location to make some delicious Cuban food! One of our favorite Cuban restaurants when we were living in Los Angeles was Havana Mania! Theresa and I would meet each other there in the middle of a work day for a quick lunch date. Our favorite dish by far was the Filete de Pollo Al Ajillo (Garlic Chicken Filet).
The owners of Havana Mania actually came over from Cuba in the 1970s, and one of their first stops was in Miami Florida. In 1975 they came out to LA where they opened one of the first Cuban restaurants on the West Side. In 1997, Havana Mania opened in Redondo Beach, serving their delicious recipes to happy guests. I'm excited to make this dinner tonight! Let's get started!
