THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Habana Cafe Restaurant Review

: Habana offers Huntington Beach's closest approximation to authentic Cuban cuisine. The vibe here is lively, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings when live music and flamenco dancers heat up the noisy scene. Start with the fried yuca, which is Habana's version of french fries, and order up a potent, hand-muddled mojito, a house specialty. For lunch, we recommend one of the traditional Cuban sandwiches. The arroz con pollo dish is massive and feeds a table of four easily. Also, try the signature camarones enchilado, the steak in a mojo sauce and the bread pudding.
